    Following the update to WordPress 3.3.1, WordPress displayed the message "An automated WordPress update has failed to complete - please attempt the update again now" in the dashboard. However, on the update page, WordPress indicates that it is the latest version.

    I have a screenshot posted to:
    (Yes, this is from the blog displaying the failed update message - the blog seems to be working fine)

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress.

    - re-running the upgrade via wp-admin/upgrade.php

    Thank you for your reply.

    I check the WordPress update and one of the files didn't get updated - I checked the file size of the files updated in WordPress 3.3.1 and one of the files had a different file size. After updating the file, I ran the upgrade and it reported the database was already upgraded. Finally, I deleted the ".maintenance" file from the WordPress directory to get the error message off.
