I am trying to:
Enter my site key under plugins > Commercial tab. The tab shows nothing but "No repositories defined".
Link to a page where the issue can be seen:
hidden link
I expected to see:
A place to enter the key.
Instead, I got:
An empty page.

Thank you for contacting WPML Support.

I am sorry to hear that you experienced problems with registering WPML. We used to have similar issues in the past which is why I hope that my workaround might solve this issue.

The problem might be related to the repositories.xml which is missing from the directory /vendor/otgs/installer.

Please go to wp-content\plugins\sitepress-multilingual-cms\vendor\otgs\installer using FTP and place the repositories.xml file.

You can download the file here:

repositories.xml file: =>hidden link

Once that is done you need to press "Check for updates" and WPML should work again as usual.

You can find a similar ticket here: new-commercial-no-repositories-defined/

Please let me know if this solved your issue.

Best regards
