I have previously been using an older version of openCARP, and decided to update to the newest version. After updating, it appears as though the "blf_i_Kur" variable no longer exists for the Courtmanche ionic model. I need to change this parameter for my model to work properly. Was this variable renamed to something different, or has it been removed? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

consult the documentation and release notes for each version of openCARP to ensure that any changes are properly accounted for in your simulations.

This was just a multiplication factor to the IKur current. You can achieve the same effect by multypling GKur with the desired value (for example --imp-par="GKur*0.4" instead of setting blf_i_Kur to 0.4).

I don't see a variable "GKur" in the Courtemanche model, but I do see "factorGKur".  I'm assuming that "factorGKur" is equivalent to the "blf_i_Kur" parameter. Is that true?

Yes, that's correct.
GKur exists in the model but is not exposed to the commandline by default due to its formulation:
