    This seems to happen occasionally with the WordPress.org repository, I've seen it on other plugins. As far as I know the plugin author is not responsible and cannot do much about this...

    @Matt: Thanks for the info :) It's working now.
    I recently sent an email to WordPress support.
    Yes, it was WordPress repository problem.

    Same problem, though if you have FTP access or server access, a manual upload works.

    I just now had to run it three times before it worked.

    Tried several times, eventually successful. Not sure what the problem was...

    I can't download the update either, as of less than a minute ago.

    Not working for me either. Are the only choices to upload manually or contact WordPress directly?

    I think the only choice is to try again later. I finally got it to update when I tried it about an hour later, and then on another site it worked automatically this morning. At the time, I couldn't upload manually either, because the update just wasn't coming up. WordPress needs to fix whatever's going on.

    Same problem, will not update. But my version installed is the most current version. So maybe there is not an update after all.

    I tried 10 times and couldn't get it to update until I deactivated the plugin and then it would update.
