Tell us what you are trying to do?

I'm trying to update my plugins: WPML CMS Nav, WPML Media, WPML Multilingual CMS, WPML Sticky Links, WPML String Translation, WPML Translation Management and there is also a note saying: "Automatic update is unavailable for this plugin."

Is there any documentation that you are following? no

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site? hidden link

yours is probably a temporary issue.

You can try the following:

Please before any attempt do a backup of your database

1. Check for updates
- Go to Plugins -> Add New -> Commercial
- Press the "Check for updates" button
- Try downloading the updated version of WPML

2. If this didn't work try updating from the Plugins -> Installed Plugins page

3. If you still see the notice "Automatic update is unavailable for this plugin", please try unregistering WPML from the site and registering it again.
- You can do it from the Plugins -> Add New -> Commercial page

4. If all of the previous methods fail, you can update manually.
- Download the latest version of WPML from here:
- Go to Plugins -> Installed Plugins
- Disable and delete the old version of WPML
- Press the "Add New" button
- Press the "Upload Plugin" button
- Select the downloaded version of WPML and install it

Let me know if this helps you or if you need further assistance.
