    I just got done uploading the new 2.3.1 files via FTP per the WP documentation. I followed every step precisely. After uploading, I went to the wp-admin/upgrade.php URL and I get this message:
    No Upgrade Required
    Your WordPress database is already up-to-date!

    So, I mosey on over and login to the dashboard and I see the A new version of WordPress is available! Please update now. message waiting for me. I’m so confused…..I think it’s beer:30.

    Check your wp-includes/version.php file. What does it say?

    It says:
    $wp_version = ‘2.3’;

    So my question is, if I was running v2.2.x and upgraded to 2.3.1, why am I still getting the upgrade message on the dashboard?

    Because 2.3.1 is the latest version.

    Ok, disregard. I just logged in again and the message is now gone.
    Thanks for your help, Michael.

    Apparently when you uploaded your files not everything got overwritten. Try again with these instructions

    Thanks, Jeremy. I did that and the message is finally gone.

    I didn’t see your last post our caching proxy must have not refreshed yet.

    Just as a note, I got the same message and I followed all the myriad of instructions. I had a message from another WordPress user who saw the same thing. In both our cases when we go to our dashboards it shows 2.3.1. So for some reason I guess you do not need to run the upgrade script to go from 2.3 to 2.31
