This is a problem only related to wordpress multi-site installs.
Occasionally a new WooCommerce update requires a database update script to be run. It mentions this in a dashboard nag asking you to click to update the db.
Problem is, on a multisite with hundreds of subblogs this becomes a daunting task of endless clicking.
Please hook a handler for the update script to the individual sites 'update script' function. In multi-site there is a handy button that lets us call that script for each site in batches of 10 at a time..
Thank you for your consideration
