Upgrade available (27 posts)

    I am on the nightlies on a test server.

    The footer in the admin panel used to have a link for 'stay updated' when updates were available.

    Now, I notice that it is always a link, and when I go to the upgrade page, it always says that an upgrade is available. Even after running an upgrade, it shows upgrade available.

    Surely that isn't right? I thought there was a nightly update, so it can't be happening all the time? Or is the upgrade somehow not actually upgrading?

    Update is WP 2.9.2. You shoulnd't update to this.

    Oh, no. Not 2.9.2

    "You are using a development version (3.0-RC2-15136). Cool! Please stay updated."

    This one. Keeps telling me that there is an upgrade available.

    I use 3.0 RC2 on my media blog and in update page:

    You are installing WordPress version 2.9.2 English.

  5. Unless you're using the Beta Testers plugin, the 'update available' will always kick you to the latest 'real' version (i.e. 2.9.2).

    It's just because you're not using 2.9.2 and it detects that.

    That is strange.

    I have:

    An updated version of WordPress is available.

    You are using a development version of WordPress. You can update to the latest nightly build automatically or download the nightly build and install it manually:

    You mean it still tried to update to 2.9.2? I have run the update several times, but I don't seem to have reverted. I'm still running the RC2. But that may explain how it keeps saying update available, if it keeps trying to install, but can't because 3.0 RC2 is a newer version....

    The url it downloads from is

    Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/nightly-builds/wordpress-latest.zip…

    I also get the exact same thing if I upgrade manually. The upgrade happens, but the alert still says updated version available.

    Its rather pointless if this url is going to serve 2.9.2 IMO - what's the point of having a development version at all? I don't think they would do that, though I haven't actually checked the code of what I download...

    I don't have the Beta Testers Plugin. I simply installed the development release. I am a newbie. Is that going to be a problem? Should I still install the plugin even though I'm already on the development release? Is that preventing updates?

  7. Back in the 2.8 days, when you got on the beta, the only way to stay on it was either the Beta Testers Plugin or manual updates.

    Apparently now, in 3.0, I get this:

    An updated version of WordPress is available.

    You are using a development version of WordPress. You can update to the latest nightly build automatically or download the nightly build and install it manually:

    So I guess it SHOULD work, though I recall it has always been a bit tetchy about checking what the latest and greatest was. I think it's a false positive, or perhaps since the subversion repository is constantly getting updated, it's just going to be weird like this. I don't know if it's checking against the SVN or the build, though.

    Its rather pointless if this url is going to serve 2.9.2 IMO - what's the point of having a development version at all? I don't think they would do that, though I haven't actually checked the code of what I download...

    Not really. Most people never test the dev version so they don't care. :)

    I keep getting the '1' flag next to updates, nagging me that there's an update available. However, if I click it I get:

    You have the latest version of WordPress. You do not need to update. However, if you want to re-install version 3.0, you can do so automatically or download the package and re-install manually

    If I have the latest version, why the hell does WP keep the update nag flag up? It's annoying.

  9. Do you have any plugins that need updating?

    I am getting the same nag (see Manntis comment) and no I do not have any plugins requiring updates.

    Any resolutions yet?

    similar issue: upgraded from wpmu 2.9.2 to wp 3.0.1 using multi site and every couple of hours I get told that 3.0.1 is avaiable :-(

    upgraded twice manually and at least twice automatically still no solution.

  12. Does WP show that you're using 3.0.1?

    It's possible theres an incomplete install, and you may want to try manually.

    in the footer it says: version 3.0.1 but every couple of hours I get notified about version 3.0.1 being now available... ignoring it will get rid of it until a few hours later...

  14. Did you try a manual re-install?

    delete wp-includes and wp-admin folder, then copy everything from the latest file over the installation? yes, done that. also done the automatic upgrade a few times, checked file permissions, everything is rosy :-)

  16. Just checking :) You would be SO surprised to find how many people say 'I manually upgraded by clicking the upgrade button!'

    What plugins are you running?

    :-( that is a whole different story. its a (formerly)wpmu network, with ~50 plugins alone in the mu-plugins folder, although most of them only influence the back end...
    asking about plugins is pointless, there are too many to check/list.

    what are you looking for? if you have a specific function in mind I can grep and see if any of my plugins contain it?

  18. wpmu == multiste 3.0 ;) No worries. I translate well.

    The thing is... I don't know what I'm looking for. My only guess is that somehow one of your plugins is causing a conflict (since if this was endemic of WP itself, more people would have the issue). The normal thing to tell people here is 'Turn off all your plugins.'

    That's not really something you want to do, Carnac says. I know :/ I would probably turn off one for a day and see what happens. Repeat ad naseum.

    the point is that even if I put the site down for maintenance and disable all plugins + mu-plugins, I need to keep it in that state for at least half a day, to see if the problem resurfaces :-(

    maybe when the next version is out I'll give that a try. or when7if I install buddypress :-) that would warrant a bigger maintenance break :-)

    thanks for spinning some ideas around for me...

    I am constantly told that I have updates required with a little '1' next to the word 'Updates' under the dashboard section.

    This is true of all 5 sites I have that are running WP 3.01.

    When I click on the Update link I am then taken to the update page where it says:

    "You have the latest version of WordPress. You do not need to update. However, if you want to re-install version 3.0.1, you can do so automatically or download the package and re-install manually:"

    Like the story of the boy who cried wolf, I am ignoring it now and fear I might miss an important update.

    Why does this glitch exist in 3.01 and when is it going to be fixed. It is incredibly annoying.

    I got quite annoyed as well. So i entered the /wp-admin/upgrade.php url in the browser, it told me I didn't need a database upgrade, but at least the update message disappeared! I hop it doesn't come back.

    Same issue here - I manually (copied files) to upgrade to 3.01, ran install, was told I had the latest version, but Dashboard still says 2.7.1 and header and footer ask me to upgrade. Glad it's not just me!

  25. If you're using the BETA, ALPHA or RC version of WordPress, please raise a ticket in trac.

    If you're using the RELEASE version of WordPress, make a new topic and list things like if you're using MultiSite or not, your plugins, etc. Also, when you manually upgrade, try deleting the whole wp-includes and wp-admin folders first.

    just installed a wpmu 3.0.1 site, and I receive the update notification error described here as well.
    When i nav to the update submenu, the notice dissapears. a few hours later it comes back.
    Strange.. not an issue for me tho because only I (super-admin) see it, and the clients(admin) do not.

  27. erikshosting - please raise a ticket in trac.
