(i) Is the PHP setting allow_url_fopen is set to On?

(ii) In the Options of the component "Joomla! Update", whether Update Server is set to "Long Term Support"?

This was a bug but has been fixed. (See Bug Squad discussion and Joomla Bug Tracker http://joomlacode.org/gf/project/joomla ... m_id=30066)

I have posted in the BS why this could still happening to the OP

Set the front end Template to a standard one.
In Extensions >>> Extension manager >>> discover tab ... Purge cache and Discover. Install anything that is discovered.
In Extensions >>> Extension manager >>> update tab ... Purge cache and Update. Install anything that is discovered and Purge cache again. Then go to Components >>> Joomla updates ... if the update doesn't show then open up the Options then click 'Save and Close'.

Performing those operations may help.

Does that mean it's now working or is it a typo ?

I had this problem and procedure below by webdongle worked. I had to repeat it several times, but eventually, 2.5.9 showed up as update.

Thanks!

Thanks Webdongle. That did the trick for me. The update was successful. But I did get a long error message that starts with:
JInstaller: :Install: Error SQL DB function failed with error number 1062

Does that tell you anything?

This was an early install of 2.5 that has been through almost all of the upgrades. And like another early install of mine, the Joomla update button doesn't show up on the control panel.

Thanks for any ideas you might have about the error.

Did that. Get: Database schema version (2.5.9) does not match CMS version (2.5.10).

this thread is about issue with 2.5.8 not recognizing 2.5.9 upgrade. sounds like you already upgraded to 2.5.10. Probably should start a new thread.
