For some reason, a MS Project [Standard 16] file stored on SharePoint Online is now loading an older version which is months out-of-date.

My next step was to retrieve an older version via the "Version History" but I have noticed that all versions from 0.44 to 0.68 are loading exactly the same out-of-date one as the latest?

I have not had this problem before with this MS Project file and have always been able to save, check-in and view the latest version. I suspect the issue happened between 30-Oct-19 and 5-Dec-19.

Do you have any troubleshooting ideas or suggestions which may have caused this problem?

According to your description, it sounds like all the versions between 0.44 and 0.68 are in fact an older version? Have a try on downloading the version history of that file via web service with link like http://yoursite/yoursubsite/_vti_history/512/DocLib/Book1.xls as this thread How to download the historical file version content using CSOM Check if you have a the same issue with the filed downalded

If you lose some certain version of that specific file, it may be better for you to open a service request for more help.
