[resolved] WordPress keeps asking me to update, even after I've updated it (12 posts)

    Hi everybody,

    Since from 3.7.1, and now 3.8 I have this weird problem

    When I enter the Dashboard, I see on the left "updates:1", and I also see the "1" on the top bar.

    On the top there is also the written "WordPress 3.8 is available. Please update now".

    When I click on "updates", I have the normal message:" You have the latest version of WordPress. Future security updates will be applied automatically."

    Everything looks fine, and as soon as I click again on anywhere on the Dashboard, the "updates:1" goes away.

    The problem?

    After a while, maybe a few minutes or more, the "updates:1" comes back, so the written above.

    I've tried already reinstalling wordpress few times but I still have this situation. It started with 3.7.1, and now keeps going like this with 3.8. Same stuff.

    Any idea about how to fix it?

    Thank you

    Should your site be running a version of WordPress other than en_US? You may have updated to 3.8 en_US but now you need to grab the updated language files etc.

    I run a few sites where I use en_GB and the same thing happens to me.

    Thank you for the answer.

    I don't remember anymore because I didn't do the first installation months ago. Probably, it's been installed in Italian but I've always updated the previous versions from the dashboard and this never happened.

    I use the "wordpress language" plugin to have the dashboard in English and the public site in Italian.

    How can I check all of this? Is it not enough to update it from the dashboard, before it wasn't doing like this :S

    What do you have defined in wp-config.php, specifically this line:

    define ('WPLANG', 'en_GB'); <--- that's mine

    I've just checked, I have this:
    define('WPLANG', 'it_IT');

    Yes, I'm reading I have to change the files .mo and .po. I didn't know I had to change them all the time.

    I will do that hoping the problem will be fixed. Thank you.

    Just a question more if I may, should I change only the it_IT.po and .mo or all the languages files admin etc.? There are 8 inside the languages folder.

    Short answer, I don't know. I'd back up and install to see what happens :)

    I've updated the files few hours ago and the message is disappeared. It seems fixed.

    Thank you.

    Nope, I thought it was resolved but it's not.

    The situation has improved because now, the "update 1" doesn't appear all the time but after a few hours it comes back.

    Any idea?
