Abstract

We found a bug in the formula used to calculate the uncertainties in the virial products. This error produced incorrect uncertainties for the virial products and consequently the black hole mass (MBH) measurements reported in Tables 4 and 5. These uncertainties were used to produce Figures 12, 13, and 14. This error is minor and does not affect any of our results or their interpretation, and thus no edits to the text are necessary. We here provide updated/corrected tables and figures produced with the correct MBH uncertainties. (Table Presented) and (Figure Presented).

N2 - We found a bug in the formula used to calculate the uncertainties in the virial products. This error produced incorrect uncertainties for the virial products and consequently the black hole mass (MBH) measurements reported in Tables 4 and 5. These uncertainties were used to produce Figures 12, 13, and 14. This error is minor and does not affect any of our results or their interpretation, and thus no edits to the text are necessary. We here provide updated/corrected tables and figures produced with the correct MBH uncertainties. (Table Presented) and (Figure Presented).
