Section 4.5.1 says:

   The Speaker notifies the Listener that it has finished sending a
   Virtual File by sending an End File (EFID) command.  The Listener
   replies with a positive or negative End File command and has the
   option to request a Change Direction command from the Speaker.
 
   1. Speaker  -- EFID ------------> Listener   End File
               <------------ EFPA --            Answer YES
 
   2. Speaker  -- EFID ------------> Listener   End File
               <------------ EFPA --            Answer YES + CD
               -- CD -------------->            Change Direction
      Listener <------------ EERP -- Speaker    End to End Response
               -------------- RTR ->            Ready to Receive
      Listener <------------ NERP -- Speaker    Negative End Response
               -------------- RTR ->            Ready to Receive
               Go to Start File Phase
 
   3. Speaker  -- EFID ------------> Listener   End File
               <------------ EFNA --            Answer NO

It should say:

   The Speaker notifies the Listener that it has finished sending a
   Virtual File by sending an End File (EFID) command.  The Listener
   replies with a positive or negative End File command and has the
   option to request a Change Direction command from the Speaker.
 
   1. Speaker  -- EFID ------------> Listener   End File
               <------------ EFPA --            Answer YES
 
   2. Speaker  -- EFID ------------> Listener   End File
               <------------ EFPA --            Answer YES   CD
               -- CD -------------->            Change Direction
      Listener <------------ EERP -- Speaker    End to End Response
               -------------- RTR ->            Ready to Receive
      Listener <------------ NERP -- Speaker    Negative End Response
               -------------- RTR ->            Ready to Receive
               Go to Start File Phase
 
   3. Speaker  -- EFID ------------> Listener   End File
               <------------ EFNA --            Answer NO
 
   Following the receipt of a positive End File command which does
   not request a Change Direction command, the Speaker has the option
   to send   a file (SFID), an EERP/NERP, a CD or an ESID with error. 

   If the Speaker wishes to end the session normally, a 
   Change Direction (CD) command MUST be sent to the Listener.
 
   4. Speaker  -- EFID ------------> Listener   End File
               <------------ EFPA --            Answer YES   No CD
               -- CD -------------->            Change Direction
      Listener <------------ ESID -- Speaker    End Session

Notes:

This erratum adds a little more documentation to the ODETTE protocol,
but doesn't seem to be correcting an actual error.

Notes:

Clarification of the protocol release level negotiation process.

This erratum adds a little more to the ODETTE protocol's documentation, but does not report an error.
