In ArcCatalog, when a user right-clicks the address locator and selects Rebuild to rebuild the address locator, the following message is displayed: "The address locator needs to be repaired in order to be rebuilt. Do you want to proceed with repair?"
This is a known issue where the software forces an unnecessary repair.
To resolve this issue, use the Rebuild Address Locator geoprocessing tool from ArcToolbox > Geocoding Tools > Rebuild Address Locator.
