Support » Fixing WordPress » WordPress won’t update: No posts, plugin updates, settings, nothing…

  • About Feb 1, 2017 my WordPress stopped allowing any updates. This includes updates to:
    • Content additions (posts and pages)
    • Plugin updates
    • General settings
    • Everything else

    The site still functions normally on the front end, but the back end is completely blocked from any changes.

    When I try to make a change (such as updating plugins) I get an error “Are you sure you want to do this. Try again later.” I click OK. The site UI seems to appear that the plugins were updated, but seconds later the UI refreshes with the old information/settings.

    Yes, I have cleared all the browser caches. I’ve tried to clear the server-side cache also… I have Sucuri installed. I have tried to clear Sucuri cache, but I get this error message: “WordPress Nonce verification failed, try again going back and checking the form.”

    An additional funky behavior: Login on the admin panel ALWAYS fails on the first attempt. I suspect somehow the update problem is effecting the submit of login credentials.

  • Please disable all your plugins one by one, and check if the issue persists. If so, please switch to default theme, and check if the issue persists. If so, please log into your host, search for php error logs and share your error logs with us.

    If switching off a plugin resolves the issue for you, please report back which plugin caused the issue.

    If you can’t deactivate the plugins / theme, just back them all up, and delete it from your FTP.

    Let us know how it goes.
