  • I get the message:

    An automated WordPress update has failed to complete – please attempt the update again now.

    I don’t know why I’m getting this message. Under updates, it says I have the latest version of wordpress 4.9.5

    Also indicates that plugins and themes are up to date.

    Why does this message show up and not go away?

    One more questions. How do I disable automatic updates?

    An automated WordPress update has failed to complete

    In case it did not complete, try MANUALLY updating. Download WordPress again and unzip it. Access your server via SFTP or FTP, or a file manager in your hosting account’s control panel (consult your hosting provider’s documentation for specifics on these), and delete then replace your copies of everything on the server except the wp-config.php file and the /wp-content/ directory with fresh copies from the download. This will effectively replace all of your core files without damaging your content and settings. Please read the <a href=”http://codex.wordpress.org

    Backup: If you haven’t already done, always backup everything (including your database) before doing any actions, just in case something really goes wrong. You can never have enough backups!
