Support » Plugin: Easy Updates Manager » Error: [fs_unavailable] Could not access filesystem.

  • Hi, I am getting this message intermittently.

    The following plugins were successfully updated:
    * SUCCESS:

    UPDATE LOG
    ==========

    Updating plugin:
    The plugin is at the latest version.
    Error: [fs_unavailable] Could not access filesystem.

    I did a search on this forum and found a reference to a WP bug that was addressed in an older version so thought I’d ask about this on 4.9.4 here.

    The plugin is otherwise working well and updating other plugins without issue. However, in this case I’d like to know how I can find the plugin that is causing this error. I couldn’t find anything in the logs and the plugin name is not mentioned in the error. Any help would be appreciated.

  • Try looking for premium plugins and removing the auto updates on them. I used to have the same problem appear with autoupdates activated in Visual composer.

    @mikota95, thanks, I have quite a few plugins so ideally I can get some help to identify the specific plugin causing the issue. Otherwise it’d be a bit of a guessing game on my part.

    It seems like a bug that the plugin name does not appear next to the “Updating plugin:” line, even if it fails to update.

    A thing you could try now is see which premium plugins needs updating. I tested and singled out the plugin that gave me errors that way.
    In my case, I used a plugin rollback to keep forcing updates and a wp-core email sender to check what wp was writing about the updates (mostly because I was working in local).
    I’ve seen in here that another known plugin thats triggers this is WPML.
    Hope this helps since as written in their wiki there isn’t a specific time support can help and they have mentioned that EUM doesn’t necessarily work with premium plugin and themes.
