  • Hello,

    I’ve been trying to automatically update Akismet from version 2.5.9 to version 2.6.0 and I’m getting this error message: “An error occurred while updating Akismet: Could not remove the old plugin.”

    This is an error message I’ve never gotten when updating plugins before.

    Any ideas about what could be the problem?

    I am having the same problem – trying to update Akisment from 2.5.9 to 2.6.0. The messages as the update is attempted are as follows:

    Downloading update from…
    Unpacking the update…

    Installing the latest version…

    Removing the old version of the plugin…

    Could not remove the old plugin.

    Plugin update failed.

    Is there anyone out there with a solution for the update. Or is the update available as a separate plugin so the old version can be deleted manually and the new version installed?
