Catalog Not Showing Checkouts

AlertUpdate: May 18: Thank you for your patience.  The issue with the catalog is resolved and customers should now be able to see their checked out items.

The Catalog is having problem showing checkouts in my account after the recent upgrade on web services. Customers should call one of our branches for assistance with renewals. Our vendor is working on resolving this now. We apologize for this inconvenience and we hope to have this resolved soon.
