I am trying to: Translate a page, but I get the error: The site is experiencing technical difficulties. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: hidden link

I expected to see: The translate page

Instead, I got: "The site is experiencing technical difficulties. Please check your site admin email inbox for instructions."

This was the url where I saw it: hidden link.

My host says this is the cause of the error:

"I'd recommend contacting the plugin developer for further assistance on the case, you can also provide them with the error:

[host] Backend fatal error: PHP Fatal error: Uncaught TypeError: Argument 1 passed to TranslationManagement::send_jobs() must be an instance of WPML_TM_Translation_Batch, array given, called in /home/restoran/domains/ on line 91 and defined in /home/restoran/domains/\nStack trace:\n#0 /home/restoran/domains/ TranslationManagement->send_jobs(Array)\n#1 /home/restoran/domains/ WPML_Translation_Job_Factory->create_local_job('14387', 'en', NULL)\n#2 /home/restoran/domains/ in /home/restoran/domains/ on line 1121\n, referer: hidden link"

Alongside, I'm getting this message on my homescreen of the wordpress backend:

WPML Update is Incomplete
You are running updated sitepress-multilingual-cms and wpml-cms-nav, but the following components are not updated:

Your site will not work as it should in this configuration Please update all components which you are using. For WPML components you can receive updates from your account or automatically, after you register WPML.

This is strange, because I did update all my wordpress plugins as you can see (if you log into my account)

You are right. How do I update the plugins? It's not the same method as it was before, is it?

The way I tried it right now, it shows ' failed' . See screenshot.

Seems you have an issue with the installer,
Please try to manually update the plugin,
- As a safety measure secure a backup of your site before you proceed
- Delete WPML plugin from plugin list this won't cause any data loss.
- Download the fresh copy of WPML plugin from
- Upload the plugin to your site => Plugins > Add new
- Once WPML latest version is installed and activated,
you can now go to Plugins > Add New > Commercial Tab to update the remaining plugins

I hope this helps you better, Let me know if you need further assistance

Kind regards
