  • I am also having the same problem when trying to update…any solution?

    You should aim your question more directly here. But check his ‘read this before you post’ entry at the top of that page.

    @charizars: I overcame the problem by:

    1. Backing up the settings from the WordPress SEO by Yoast Import & Export tab.
    2. Removing the plugin and re-installing it.
    3. Importing the settings from the back up file.

    You’re done. I hope it works fine for you.
