I am trying to: update WPML plugins

Link to a page where the issue can be seen: nowhere

I expected to see: a plugin updated

Instead, I got: this error message Bijwerken mislukt: Het pakket kan niet geïnstalleerd worden. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

Thank you for contacting WPML Support.

Sorry for the trouble, there were some update issue appeared with our WPML v4.2.0 release. Could you please delete and install WPML plugin manually?

To do a manual update please follow these steps:

1. Please take your full site backup.

2. Deactivate the existing WPML plugin.

3. Delete the plugin files – this does not delete your translations. You will simply delete the plugin files from your "wp-content/plugins" folder, NOT the database records.

4. Download the updated plugins from our servers ( and upload them to the plugin directory.

5. Activate the WPML plugin and add-ons.

Thank you
