Cannot Upgrade to 5.5.2 from 5.5.1

Permalink
Upgrade in Dashboard tells me I'm already at the latest version (5.5.1) and doesn't do anything.

I also manually downloaded the 5.5.2 file package and copied it over the top of my existing installation. I used the /tools/required/upgrade.php tool per the upgrade instructions in the downloaded ZIP file. It too tells me that I'm already at the latest version and asks if I want to run the script again anyway. After running it says I'm upgrade to 5.5.1.

What gives?

Sounds like the new core isn't in the right spot. Try extracting the zip archive into the updates/ folder at the root of your site. The path should look like:

(your site root)/updates/concrete5.5.2

Then go to Dashboard > System & Settings > Backup & Restore.

The URL method is really only necessary when your current core is somehow broken / not working and you can't get to the dashboard.

Thanks! That accomplished the upgrade and no problems so far.

Appreciate the assist! Perhaps it's time to update the INSTALL file in the archive to reflect that procedure.

Glad to hear it's working!

I took a peek at the upgrade instructions in the INSTALL textfile and while they *should* technically still work, you're right that the last time they got much attention was likely before the whole dashboard upgrade feature was introduced. We'll add revising those to our to-do list for next time.

I have quite a few sites that symlink to common cores. I always do this manually (never had a problem before):

Clean / Disable Cache
Backup files & database
rm concrete ; ln -s ../c5XX concrete
http://site.com/index.php/tools/required/upgrade.php...

I upgraded one today from 5.5.1 to 5.5.2, and it said already upgraded to 5.5.1 - several other people on IRC mentioned getting the same message.

After hitting retry *three* times it finally said upgraded to 5.5.2 - the site is running great.

Methinks something else might be going on...
