Core Version 22.214.171.124, Version installed 126.96.36.199??1 user found helpful
Back when I updated to 188.8.131.52 from 184.108.40.206, I had some problems - but I managed to get my site working again.
My environment info tells me Core Version 220.127.116.11, Version installed 18.104.22.168.
I have tried to do a manual update several times (it has always worked in the past with no hitches) but I can't seem to get it done.
In the updates folder I have 2 folders: Concrete22.214.171.124_remote_updater and Concrete5.7.2...
My hosting provider (A2 Hosting) uses Softaculous and the version it displays is 126.96.36.199.
Can someone help me to figure out what to do? I am completely backed up and was going to try reinstalling but I remember having had tons of problems when I tried doing that and basically had to build my site over again from scratch.
Any guidance would be most appreciated.
I'd like to have my entire instance of C5 get all the fixes available.
Please advise on how best to do this. Thanks!
btw- cache cleared, app pool and app server cycled, etc. :)
UPDATE! ::: querystring parameter "force=1" fixed the issue for me. Please read on...
My first "upgrade" went as outlined above. I repeated the process by clicking the link at the bottom of the upgrade result page that read as follows:
"Click here if you would like to re-run this script."
The "Click here" text is linked with this URL:
The querystring parameter "force=1" is what did the trick. the upgrade result page now reads as follows:
Upgrade to 188.8.131.52 complete!
And my Environment Information shows that the update fully occurred:

Core Version - 184.108.40.206

Hope this helps someone.
