On one of my sites, I was running 2.7 when 2.7.1 was announced. I tried to run the Automated Update and it "hung" (I finally found the docs for my host that discuss using php-cgiwrap, but after the hang).
Anyway, I quit the browser, logged in with ssh, and did a subversion upgrade like I've done in past.
But now I have the message "An automated WordPress update has failed to complete - please attempt the update again now." at the top of my dashboard, even though the "Right Now" section says I'm running 2.7.1
Any idea how to "clear" the erroneous message asking me to attempt the upgrade again now?
