Error System.QueryException Duplicate fields selected

I received 100+ error emails overnight that all look a bit like what I've copied/pasted below. I'm not a developer and am trying to figure out how to fix this. Luckily it's in our Partial Sandbox, so is not affecting our Production org but still, would like to get to the bottom of it. From what I've read, a duplicate field error like this means there are fields with identical API names and the query errors out essentially not knowing which one to use/reference. I do see fields with the label "Amount" with identical APIs but nothing that has changed or been added in the last couple days, which makes me think why would this error suddenly come up now. Where do I find the query? How do I identify which Amount field it's looking for? And where/how do I update the query to fix this?

Error Type: System.QueryException

Hi Kristen,

You got this error bcs : two fields have the same API name
Example :

Account obj  = [Select Id, Name, Name from Account];
Here Name  field is used twice then also we are getting two fields have the same API name Error.
Check your select query and let me know your review.
Mark it as best answer if you resolved it.

Thanks Foram. Where can I find the select query to edit it?

In your apex class related to your functionality.
there is twice the Amount field in your select query.

Thanks Foram. The apex class is from a managed package, and when I look at it the code area is blank. How should I address that?

and not sure how to resolve this. 

Any help would be much appreaciated.

Hi Shraddha,
I never got an answer or resolution but the issue hasn't come up again since December 2019.
