Cannot Add New Blocks after upgrading to 5.6.02
When upgrading from C5 v188.8.131.52 to v6 I had a few problems (posted here at the forumshttp://www.concrete5.org/community/forums/installation/update-to-5.... )
I had to change the config/site.php line to 184.108.40.206 and run with that for a while. After discussing the problem in that forum topic, it became apparent that my aging theme wasn't compatible with v6, so I've recently bought the Bootstrap theme and have a CSS hack in place to keep my old theme somewhere near together while I set up Bootstrap.
My problem now is that I cannot install any new blocks. I get the following errors in the modal box instead of a list of blocks:
Warning: require_once(/home/sites/photoboffin.co.uk/public_html/packages/google_plus_one/blocks/google_plus_one/controller.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/sites/photoboffin.co.uk/public_html/updates/concrete220.127.116.11/concrete/core/libraries/loader.php on line 205

These mention Google Plus One, which I don't actually use and can't get rid of. The package is still in v1 and is listed under updates available, but the update doesn't work and when I click the edit button to uninstall it, the site just returns with the add-on list page again. I also cannot find any directory for Google Plus One.
Any ideas as to a remedy?
You accidentally removed Google Plus One package from your /packages directory before uninstalling it from the concrete5 dashboard.
We uploaded Google Plus One back to /packages and you can now add blocks again as normal.
We notice you have a great deal of themes and add-ons installed that you are not using. It would be best to uninstall these from the concrete5 dashboard then manually delete the packages from the /packages directory.
Be sure to not delete any themes or add-ons that you have not already uninstalled from the concrete5 dashboard :)
Thanks for all your help and support.
I'll have a clear out of the uninstalled themes and addons when I get back home on my land line broadband connection (currently on 3g in my caravan :-))
It would seem I am having exactly the same problem at Pete. I am not able to add blocks and receive the same message concerning Google Plus One.
I can see it in my add-on section but am not able to remove it, upon checking my packages/ directory i cannot locate it.
What is the best way to fix this issue as i think/hope it is the cause of a lot of issues i am currently facing.
Thank you in advance.
Download Google Plus One from here.
Unzip the package and upload it to your /packages directory.
This should take care of the issue.
This problem seems to be something to do with trying to uninstall or update the Google Plus One package.
When I read this latest topic update, I tried to uninstall it and I got an error message referring to something in the database. I then tried updating the package and got a message "...there was an error ...); then I couldn't add any blocks again.
The package directories identity must be being lost somehow - it's rather beyond me.
I downloaded, unzipped and added the package again, and now everything is working.
This package hasn't updated properly for months. You'd get a number "1" where the "package updated successfully" message usually appears. The same happens with Tony's File Details package. However, nothing untoward would happen whilst running 126.96.36.199; it was only after updating to v5.6 that I had problems.
