Updating Joomla from 3.3.6 to 3.6.5 Breaks Site

Post by msmonaco » Wed Feb 14, 2018 4:01 pm

I cannot update Joomla from 3.3.6 to 3.6.5 as it breaks the site every time. I have also tried to install updates from the extension manager, 3.4.0 to 3.8.5, both .zip and .tar.gz, none of which installs the updates. Can anyone offer some insight or solution? Thanks.

Mod. Note: Relocating the topic from Installation to the Upgrade forum.
