Board inconsistency: unable to repair

Hi,

 

I have no idea how this happened (the design was ok just yesterday) but I now have inconsistencies between board and schematic:

In the schematic, everything if fine but in the board, routes are somehow attached to the wrong nets. 

 

No problem, I will just redraw the nets and the board will then be updated. Unfortunately, that doesn't work. I also tried deleting the wrong routes and tried again but to no avail. The pins on the IC are not updated and appear to have no net assigned to them:

How do I fix this? Nothing I do in the schematics seems to have any effect on the board. I've had these issues before and was always able to solve them by just redrawing the nets.

Nevermind. The way to fix it is to get rid of all board inconstencies first, even if that means ruining things even further by introducing other problems. 

 

In my case I removed all connections and made a new net with the name S$2 and connected that to IC4 pin SDA. I then got a list of other errors but the board and schematic were now consistent again and I could then fix those.
