Support » Fixing WordPress » 5.5 broke pretty much everything

  • Well after the upgrade, nearly everything doesn’t work. Media library vanished (now nothing showing), tabs on the side no longer expand out when you hover over them. Can’t edit/add tags anymore. Occasional no access to admin panel. Translations always says it needs updating, when you do it, it says successful, then tells you it needs updating again. Thumbnail regeneration has been going for almost an hour now (which I am surprised due to lack of media files I have). Every refresh says it’s still running.

    I eventually managed to disable every single plugin, reverted back to the Twenty Twenty standard theme. Still no joy. Does exactly the same thing.

    I notice the automatic update file has a *****-no-content.zip at the end of it

    I always thought it should end with something like *****-5.5–en_US.zip or similiar?

    Also the upgrade seemed to get stuck at disabling maintenance mode for almost 10 minutes, then suddenly went to upgrading database.

    Going to try a manual upgrade over the top and pray for a decent result.
