Won't show new updates
Currently running 8.1.0
This started with me trying to get the conversations block working. It never gets past the spinning loading wheel. Tried removing the block and adding a new one with a no go. In the setting I see nothing that would stop it from working only settings that change how it works.
BUT FORGET THAT FOR NOW.
I then thought well since I am not running the currently version lets start there. The other post stated how the back office of C5 will not complete the install (at the time it was 8.2.1).
GoDaddy is showing no Concrete5 update available.
Finally getting to sit down:
So lets, Fast forward to today.
New version available. 8.3.1 says "The biggest new feature to 8.3.1 is the upgrade path: it's now possible to update from any version as far back as 188.8.131.52 to 8.3.1 directly."
So my question is: Why when in the back office of C5, when I hit "check for updates" does it show nothing newer than 8.2.1, which will not update either due to "invalid token".
I am sensing a bigger system failure.
Can I update manualy or something? what is wrong?
There were bugs that prevented the concrete5 dashboard from downloading and displaying updates. I believe these were fixed in version 8.3.2.
You should be able to update manually from your current version to the latest 8.4.2.
Here are text and video instructions on manually updating concrete5.
One last note on updating, always make a full site backup (site files and database export) before manually or automatically updating please. This protects your site and data in case of an unforeseen problem.
