Failed to purge updates, failed to enable updates

Postby kram-sa » Tue Feb 28, 2012 6:53 pm

Hello All,

I am trying to upgrade a Joomla! 1.7.5 Stable to 2.5.1 without success.

In -- admin - extension manager - update

I click Find Update which returns none

I then click Purge Cache and get the following error message.
"Failed to purge updates, failed to enable updates"

I have searched and search and cannot find any posts related to this topic.

Any suggestions?

@alikon - Thanks,

Yes I have read throught that doc.

I have updated quite a few sites to J2.5!
These range from 1.5 -- 2.5 & 1.7 -- 2.5
Have never seen this particular error before.

I FTP'd a full 1.7.5 , overwriting all the files on the server, just incase something was corrupted. Sadly that did not help.

--Quick Test--
I just set up a test site with 1.7.0
Ran the updater and Purge Cache without any problems.

--Further Info--

Checked Permissions
Checked CPU Load
Checked DB

I came across the same problem.

In my case granting additional privileges for the user to the site's database helped.

I had: ALTER, CREATE, DELETE, EXECUTE, INSERT, LOCK TABLES, SELECT, UPDATE
I've added: CREATE_TEMPORARY_TABLES, DROP

I'm not sure which one of the two above helped, because the updates got purged right after the first shot.

Hi,
I am having the same problem. Trying to upgrade from 1.7 to 2.5. My database permissions include CREATE_TEMPORARY_TABLES, DROP.

Any other suggestions?

Thanks,
Dina
