I am trying to: Do regular maintenance on wp-admin.

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: Cannot be seen in the frontend.

I expected to see: No update error messages from WPML.

Instead, I got: Update error message from WPML (see screenshot). The WP updates pages does not offer updates. And logging into my account on WPML.prg, the Sites dashboard does report outdated versions, but doesn't offer updates either.

Hi.

I've checked things on my test site and I don't see this problem.

You should be able to see if WPML and its add-ons need updating if you go here on your site.

That did the trick. Still confused as to why the WP update feature didn't do the job though.

Great! I'm glad that it is fixed now.
I'm also can't be sure why this happened on your site.
Sometimes issue like that happens when there is a fresh new release which is the case now.
