Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress Updates does not show plugin updates

  • Hi All,

    When I go to Dashboard -> WordPress Updates, I can only see options to update WordPress and to update Themes. I no longer see options to update my plugins. Am I missing something or is there a way to enable the update notifications for plugins as well?

    I am using WP 3.3.1.

    Thanks.

    Regards,
    Riyaz

    No – the Plugin updates are all part of the same update functionality.

    But I don’t see a section for Plugin Updates when I go to Dashboard -> Updates. I can only see option to reinstall WordPress version and a section for Theme Updates. There is no section for plugin updates on that page.

    Any thoughts?

    What I noticed is, even if I login using Administrator account, the function current_user_can('update_plugins') returns false. However current_user_can('update_themes') returns true.

    Any ideas what could be wrong?

    There is no section for plugin updates on that page.

    Then presumably none of your plugins need updating.

    Actually there are more than 10 plugins that need updates.

    As I said, even though I login using Administrator role, the function current_user_can('update_plugins') returns false. However current_user_can('update_themes') returns true.

    As per this page, Administrator has both roles update_plugins as well as update_themes. So I am confused what could be wrong?

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of WordPress.

    ok..will try this in the next WP update. Don’t want to switch themes on the live site. Currently I have commented out the check condition from update-core.php and update.php and it works just fine.
