Unable to upgrade Joomla from 3.9.8 due to missing XML File

Post by evo_webmaster » Tue Mar 24, 2020 4:56 am

When trying to upload Joomla from 3.9.8 to any later version, I receive the error below;

JInstaller: :Install: Can't find XML setup file

The update packages are downloaded directly from this site, so they should be fine to use.

I tried changing the php.ini file to use the following setting;
upload_tmp_dir= /home/sitename/public_html/tmp

I can see this in editor mode, but not in basic mode when looking through cpanel.

Has anyone encountered a similar issue and am I barking up the wrong tree?

Are you using the Joomla! Update component to update J!?

Thank you for your message.
The Joomla component said it was up to date, so it could not recognise any updates.

I have actually now solved the issue, by clearing the Update Cache on the install menu.

I never knew there was an update cache, so you learn something everyday.
