That probably means you toyed with the order of the variables in the
cart, or totally removed the variables that show the quantity.

You need to have any remove box before the quantity variable, and you
need to have a variable for the quantity of each item, even if only
in a HIDDEN.

This is the type of thing a competent consultant could show you in
just a few minutes, and I think it is even in the docs somewhere if
you look.
