This is an issue that we resolved on our latest releases

The solution is to do a first-time install of the main plugin only (WPML Multilingual CMS):


Afterward, you can use the “Check again” button at "Dashboard->Updates".

After that, you will be able to normally update other plugins.

This procedure is needed only on this particular update. We have fixed it for the next versions.

Please let me know if it helps.
