No, and I do not know how his bank would let him "cancel" a check that has already been cashed.
Send the check back and let the Landlord know that you have already negotiated the first check.
If your bank tries to debit your account for the cashed check, you need to dispute it with the bank. The check was good when it was cashed. You also need to file complaint against the Landlord with the Attorney General's Office.
You can also file lawsuit (Small Claim) against the Landlord for any charges to your account that result from the check being cancelled and your bank trying to debit your account for the check.
Has the money been taken from your account?
Have you returned the replacement check?
Thank you for the information.
I am here wondering how the bank was able to get a check that has already been cashed cancelled.
In any event, give the Landlord about a week to get back to you. If the Landlord ignores you, then you need to file complaint with the Attorney General's Office or proceed with a Small Claim.
