  • My dashboard tells me that my (self-hosted) WP instance has an update available:

    The dashboard on my WP instance shows this:

    Is it telling me that I need to re-install 5.8-en_GB?

    The messaging is confusing – it’s telling me everything is up-to-date, and is not indicating any problem, but gives me the option to re-install something without telling me why it’s necessary.

    What should I do?

    It takes me to the update page in my WP dashboard (the second screenshot).

    Ok so it’s showing you that you have a new version of both the “translation and various other localisation fixes”, so i think you should simply re-install it, as it suggests.
