  • From version 7.0 the plugin completely ceased to work. Nothing updates, even yourself. I used to use it before, I am now looking for a replacement. The plugin got messed up and became useless. Rating “1”.

    What version of WordPress are you running? I know auto updates were messed up in WordPress 4.9.3. The updates were very close.

    One thing threw me completely, so much so – that I fingered that the plugin didn’t work at all, and it was:-

    Automatic Updates

    These options will enable or disable automatic updates (background updates) of certain parts of WordPress. Select Custom for more flexibility. Leave as Default for normal WordPress behavior

    [Default[ [On] [Off] [Custom]

    So you figure default is what you want: < NOT! > – It’s …

    [ ON. ] Meaning that Automatic updates are … wait for it, but — on, to be run automatically.

    As I say: the out of the box ( install, update? ) – Doesn’t enable the plug-in. It might not be your problem, but since I found that toggle: then the Plug-in on my web site worked like a charm.

    Hope it helps.

    WordPress 4.9.3 has been updated automatically. After that, the plug-in stopped working. He does not update himself either.
    I manually updated WordPress to version 4.9.7, but nothing has changed. If you still do not work, uninstall Easy Updates Manager from all sites.

    Hi @alex_er,

    WordPress 4.9.3 release has a bug and broken automatic updates. That is why 4.9.4 is released. So after updating to 4.9.3, Easy Updates Manager is not able to update anything, you need to manually update.

    But if you’re updated manually to 4.9.7, then it will update everything automatically, please make sure you turn on the automatic updates in general tab (2nd section)
