Support » Installing WordPress » Automatic upgrade from WPMU 2.9.2 to WP 3.0.1 fails – file not found

  • Resolved quinnwarnick


    I’m running WPMU 2.9.2 and I’m trying to auto-upgrade to WP 3.0.1. When I login to the dashboard, I see a message telling me that version 3.0.1 is available, but when I click the “Upgrade Automatically” button and enter my server’s FTP information, I get this error message:

    Downloading update from

    Download failed.: Not Found

    Installation Failed

    I was under the impression that WPMU was going away once WP 3.0 was released, but the Release Archive does contain a link to a 3.0 version of WPMU. Will the link to the file eventually work? Or is there a way I can force WPMU 2.9.2 to look for the regular file when it runs the upgrade script?

    Thanks in advance for any ideas or advice. If all else fails, I will upgrade manually, but I have really come to love the auto-upgrade feature, and I hope there’s a way to make that happen.

  • +1 having this problem. I never upgrade until there is an x.x.1 release (so that the bugs are all fixed), so I waited until 3.0.1 to upgrade, but I’m getting the same error.

    I’m having a problem upgrading to 3.01 with the Automatic Upgrade plugin, but the error tells me that the files are not writable. My permissions have been set properly for some time and I have used Automatic Upgrade successfully in the past.

    Seems like some other issue involving the plug in with 3.01.

    Same problem here.

    have tried regular fixes, and none work.

    Why would there even be a reference to WPMU

    (WordPress MU 3.0.1 is available! Please update.)

    , if there is a product merger?

    There’s a trac ticket out, but just upgrade manually. Nothing’s broken, it was just an oversight.

    This problem has been solved. (Thanks!) You can check the Release Archive to see that there is now a link to at the bottom of the page.
