We revisit the well-studied outburst of the low-mass X-ray binary (LMXB) system V404 Cygni, and claims of γ-ray excesses observed with the Fermi-LAT instrument. Upon analysing an 11.5 yr data set with the 8-yr LAT point source catalogue and 8-yr background models, we find no evidence to suggest that there is high energy γ-ray emission during the outburst period (or at any other time) from V404 Cygni. This is due to the proximity of V404 Cygni to the γ-ray emitting blazar B2023+336, a luminous source approximately 0.3○ away, which causes source confusion at the position of V404 Cygni, the luminous γ-ray background, and the use of older background models and catalogues in previous studies.
