I am trying to:
update the translation management plugin

Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
You can see the problem when logged into admin

I expected to see:
all WPML plugins to be updated successfully and still be in the plugins section
Instead, I got:
A message that the Translation Management plugin is needed and it disappeared. In the separate download install page it says failed in red. during update there is a message that says the folder already exists.
