I don't think so. UHS cards are much faster than earlier cards with
"Class" ratings. And "Type 2" refers only to CF cards.

UHS2 is backwards compatible with UHS1, but there can be issues in
card readers that aren't set up for 2, just like Peter was told. I
still wouldn't be surprised if the problem arose from multiple
exposures, and some possibility that the backward compatibility
induced problems. There are more contacts on UHS2 cards, and contact
placement in the camera might be an issue. If I were Peter, I might
stick with UHS1.
