Plugin Upgrade Link isn't available (4 posts)

    On one of my WordPress installs, the "upgrade" link on the plugins page doesn't show for those plugins whose upgrades are available. I just get the "View version X.XX details" link but the automatic upgrade link that is supposed to be there after that is not there. This problem has been there ever since automatic plugin upgrade system was introduced in WP (v2.5 I think).

    I've other WP installs on same server (different domains) & 2 other WP installs on the same domain (different sub-domains) which do not have this problem.

    Now the only difference that I see in this particular WP install & other installs is that this one (which has this problem) is an old WP install (original was v1.5 when it was released) and then I've been upgrading it (its running latest v2.7.1 right now). The other installs which do not have this problem were installed much after that (with v2.3).

    Can anyone please help with determining what's wrong in this particular install & why the automatic plugin upgrade link is not available & what can be the possible solution to this problem?

    Its just that upgrading plugins manually one by one is a very time consuming job! :(

    I have the same issue. This is a 2.7.1 installation, which was upgraded from a 2.6 installation that was fresh.

    I have another 2.7.1 installation that's been upgrading since 2.3 or so; there are also fresh 2.7 installations and other variations. None have the "upgrade automatically" link missing from the plugins page.

    The functionality for installing new plugins seems to work OK. But it's a real pain having the "upgrade automatically" link missing.

    The only fix to this problem that I can think of right now is to export all the posts & comments, delete the wordpress install, install a fresh v2.7.1 copy again & import the posts & comments back in there!

    Its something that I would like to keep as a last option but there doesn't seem to be any other option available at the moment!! :(
