    Dear all,

    I received early this morning a message from two of my WordPress installations to tell me that an the automatic update was done for the core. But, on both admin interface, I still have a notice message to tell me that an update is available and I should update 😉

    It’s like if the update has not been done automatically and should be done manually, whereas my WordPress installations are both on 3.8.2.

    Have you got the same thing?

  • I don’t have the issue, My site was updated this morning and i did receive an email as well. My WP is updated to 3.8.2 though. I don’t have a message on the dashboard asking me to update again.

    Third WP site updated automatically this morning and same result as earlier : WP seems to be updated to the last version, but I still have the flag on the “update” in the dashboard (and in the menu to the top of the admin page of course) which indicate to me that there an update to do 😉

    Of course, when I try to update manually WP (which already in 3.8.2) clicking on “update to WordPress to 3.8.2” nothing happens…

    All these 3 installations have differents configurations (2 of them are on a dedicated directory, the third one is installed directly on the root)…

    It’s very strange, and it’s the 1st time I see WP indicating that there an update to do even if everything is already updated (core or modules…)

    Try:
    – switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme’s folder inside wp-content/themes and adding “-old” to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder and the wp-config.php & root .htaccess files – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    – running the upgrade manually via wp-admin/upgrade.php

    Hummm, does-it mean I should reinstall all my plugins? and reconfigure all of them?

    No. Your theme & plugin settings are saved in your database and should be retained for future use.

    Your process works fine for the third one. For the two others, a bit lazy, I tried again to restart the upgrade manually, by clicking on the core-update button. And this evening, It works !!!

    Very strange, but thanks for your help.

    If you’re using server side memory caching (like memcached) you may have to flush the cache to make it catch up. Not a huge problem, and would totally explain why it caught up later 🙂
