Don't show the field info. Show the entire table's info, including the indexes.
I would guess that you have a composite key defined on that table and indeed when you tried to change the category from 1 to 2 you managed to create a duplicate composite key.
Try issuing the commandand if you can't figure out what it shows you, show the result to us.Code:DESCRIBE TABLE account;
