I did a google search for the error wording 'Another Update in Progress' when I tried to install wordpress 5.2.4, as I got locked out. I installed this, activated it and 5.2.4 went in, I didn't need to go into phpmyadmin. I don't write reviews normally, but this plugin got me out of a jam and I thought I would reflect that in this written review. Much appreciation.
