    I just updated my WordPress version 3.0.(something) to 3.4.1 from the autmoatic Updater in the admin dashboard.
    It seemed to update successfully, but there was an error message at the end of it:

    Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.4.1.zip…
    Unpacking the update…
    Verifying the unpacked files…
    Installing the latest version…
    Upgrading database…
    WordPress updated successfully

    Fatal error: Call to undefined function self_admin_url() in /home/content/x/x/x/xxxxxx/html/XXXXXXX/wp-admin/includes/update-core.php on line 698

    When I open the file in question, line 698 is:

    show_message( '<span class="hide-if-no-js">' . sprintf( __( 'Welcome to WordPress %1$s. You will be redirected to the About WordPress screen. If not, click here.' ), $new_version, esc_url( self_admin_url( 'about.php?updated' ) ) ) . '</span>' );

    The site seems okay as far as I can tell visually, but anyone know what this means, if anything ?

    Thanks !!

    Did some search, looks like that error doesn't cause any problems, but looks like here is what others have done:

    Hmm... I don't want to do any code meddling to fix this problem, which I just got upon upgrading to 3.4.1. Could not see anything wrong until I installed and activated Ultimate Security Checker plugin (compatible with 3.4.1) and got an error message telling me I don't have permission. Could this be connected with the 3.4.1 update error message?
    Hackers coding to prevent security plugins working?
