    When you open the Hub in Edit mode, there should be a message in a yellow box at the top which tells you whether there is (only) one potentially broken link or more than one.  It will also tell you that the link(s) is or are highlighted. 

    The highlighting is a pale yellow that may be hard to see, so look at your screen from different angles if you don't notice it at first.  Then, just open the correct capsule and either delete the link altogether (in a link capsule) or break the link if it is in a text capsule.

    As spsingh mentioned, this could be a matter of a Hubber having an unpublished Hub that you had linked to at one time.  It is possible that the Hub will eventually be restored, in which case the link would again become viable - and so you have to make the choice of whether to delete/break the link now or wait and see whether there will be a change in the future.  The warning triangle will show up on your Stats page until the link has been changed (broken, deleted, or repaired).

    EDIT:  sofs' method sounds very quick and simple, so that may be the best way to try first.  I didn't even know it was possible!  Very cool... smile
