To get rid of that error, the code needs to be fixed/rewritten.  It
might be as simple as putting 'if ( SHA !in arp_states ) return;'
after line 183 or it might not be, one would have to read/understand
the code more closely to determine how to fix it.  If you don't get
more of a response in this list, you could try contacting the author
of the script directly (their name/email is at the top of it) to see
if they have any changes/updates, else you could try fixing the code
