I’m currently working on a major new version of the datatool package. This may take a while. Please be patient. (Experimental version available for testing.)

\newglossaryentry{sample}{name={sample},description={an example}}
This is the example from the documentation. It no longer creates a glossaries.
The log contains the warning
Package glossaries Warning: Can't make glossary `,main,', it doesn't exist on i
nput line 146.
Note the two commas around main. Looking at the code one can see that glossaries e.g. checks if \cs{@glotype@,main,@out} exists and that fails.

With glossaries 2021/11/01 v4.49 it still works.

Fixed in v4.51 (2022-11-02). Allow a few days for it to reach the TeX distributions. In the meantime, use rollback.
