I am trying to update the plug-ins.
I had the same issue as in:

Did the update manually.
But still I get:

WPML Update is niet compleet

U werkt met geüpdatet wpml-cms-nav, wpml-media-translation, wpml-sticky-links, wpml-string-translation en wpml-translation-management, maar de volgende onderdelen zijn nog niet geüpdatet:

Uw site zal niet functioneren zoals hij zou moeten doen in deze configuratie Update a.u.b. alle onderdelen die u gebruikt. Voor WPML onderdelel, kunt u updates ontvangen van uw account of automatisch, nadat u WPML hebt geregistreerd.

Even tough the plug-in has been updated! ?

Hello Muriel,

Since you already tried to update manually, I would like to ask you for credentials to your website and FTP. It will help me debug the issue and find the solution. You will find the fields for WordPress and FTP access below the comment area when you log in to leave your next reply.

Hello Muriel,

Thank you for the credentials. However, when I tried to open your website, I got the 500 error and when I tried to log into FTP I was immediately disconnected (access denied).
Could you please check what's going on with your server?

Ftp, the folder can be left out and do not use the secure TLS version.
The WPML Sitepress plug-in was the issue that caused the 500 error.
Removed it, reinstalled it via FTP.

Also received a workaround to put in wp-admin\includes\file.php from the hosting service.

Hello Muriel,

Do I understand you correctly that everything works fine now? If not, please let me know.

Hi Joanna, for me this issue can be closed. But keep in mind that I am not the only one with a Windows Server, so something has got to be changed. 😉

Well, google led me straight to this page...I have exactly the same problem.
Updated via plugin-section, via hidden link.
None of it will help and I keep getting this message as read before (muriel)
