I am trying to: Update WPML plugins

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: N/A

I expected to see: The ability to update, since my plugins are registered.

Instead, I got: I am not getting the option to update, even though there are updates available.

Hello, thank you for contacting WPML Support!

Usually, this is a temporary issue.

Can you please try these steps?

1. Check for updates
❌ Before proceeding please make a full website backup! ❌

- 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. Try temporarily deactivating the WPML plugins and updating them while they are deactivated.

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

Please let me know if this solves the issue or if you need further details.

Thank you
