I have this simple code, which tries to update the product's name & description like this:

$productID = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')

if ($productID)
    $p = Mage::getModel('catalog/product'); 
    $p = null;

This causes the following error to occur:

SQLSTATE[23000]: Integrity constraint violation: 1062 Duplicate entry '3596-0-1-0' for key 'CC12C83765B562314470A24F2BDD0F36', query was: INSERT INTO catalog_product_entity_group_price (entity_id, all_groups, customer_group_id, value, website_id) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?, ?)

I've noticed this error only occurs IF the product has group_price set on it (even though I am not updating this).

Any ideas? I am on magento 1.9.x

Okay, I have solved it like this: hope this helps someone else with similar issue...

// Update Existing Product
$productAction = Mage::getSingleton('catalog/product_action')
$productAction->updateAttributes(array($productID), array(
    'name' => $product->Name,
    'description' => $product->Description
), 0); // 0 = store id (default scope)
$productAction = null;
