Maintenance tool reports corrupted installation

Qt Creator 4.7.1
MacOS 10.13.6

I used qt-unified-mac-x64-3.0.5-online.dmg to install Qt. I was able to
run the maintenance tool without issue and set up my projects. I went
back to it and removed Qt 5.9 stuff that I didn't need and it also
worked. But now when I open the maintenance tool it reports that my
configuration seems to be corrupted and I should consider re-installing
from scratch.

It still seems to work though. Is there some way to fix this? Should I
just ignore it?

This happens regularly for me. What I usually do is to open
components.xml and check exactly which packages are listed, and which
are installed. There's usually something left behind that is responsible
for that message. Remove it, and you should be good to go again.

Please remember to make a backup of that file first! ;)

P.S.: The issue is unrelated to Qt Creator and would be better fitted on
the qt-interest list.
