I hope this question is not a duplicate. I am motivated by wondering when widely accepted results may be considered have a secure place in the mathematical literature. The question is intended to refer to temporal gap. I am particularly interested in cases where a result generally recognised to be of interest has later turned out to be definitely false (eg by explicit demonstration of a counterexample). However, cases where a widely accepted "proof" has later been shown to be incorrect, yet the result has later been correctly proved are also of some interest (such as the 19th century example of a "proof" of the four colour theorem whose incorrectness went undetected for 11 years, although the theorem is now known to be true). The nature of this question may change over time as formal proof checking becomes more advanced.
