Yep, that's happened to me as well.  I had to dive deep into gpredict's
database and remove the file for the old satellite number.  Re-update
from network, and it should fetch the right info.  I think what happens
is that the change in satellite number is not updated in the file, so it
continues to reference the TLE info from before the change.  If the
surgical approach doesn't work, you can just remove (rename for safe
keeping) the entire satdata directory and refetch everything anew.

On my OpenSuSE Leap system, it's all stored under ~/.config/Gpredict/satdata
