Steps to reproduce:

1 Take score that has been saved on line -- and therefore in Score/Properties/Source has a full URL to the score up on musescore.org

2 "Save Online" -- and it will, knowing the score from the full URL, ask to update an exisiting score

3

4 "Save Online" -- and it will not know the score is to be updated, because the #2 trashed Score/Properties/Source from a full URL to a badly formed local reference "/score/view?score_id=6552607", for example

work around is to recopy into Score/Properties/Score the full URL of the score from musescore.org

Yes, I'm having this issue too.
And only with scores that had been saved online before MuseScore 3.6.
Workaround ist to copy the source URL before and paste it back after.
Or fix it by changing
"/score/view?score_id=6552607"
to
"https://musescore.com/score/6552607", which then will redirect properly, here to https://musescore.com/user/23927776/scores/6552607 and IMHO is the better URL to store in a score anyway, for privacy reasons (and private/unlisted scores)

It is something the Web developers of/on musescore.com need to fix, maybe with help from other staff members, as we mere mortals canneither debug nor fix it there

From Contact on the musescore.com website, I'd thought to log the issue for their developers, got a reply from a Paula, and then following up this listed "You can report an issue or ask a question here.", which seems to have gotten me back to you--not to the website developers.
