Joomla update still on 3.9.21

Post by Robgunner21 » Wed Mar 03, 2021 1:39 pm

Hi

I checked out the latest joomla news today and noticed the release of 3.9.25 but if I go to my backend and click Joomla update it states I am on the latest at 3.9.21 anyone have the same issue.
Can I update from 3.9.21 - 3.9.25?

Kind Regards
Rob

Make sure you have cleared the browser & site cache and also made a backup of the site before attempting any updates.

Head to components > Joomla Update
Click the options button (top right) and make sure the update channel is set to default
Within the live update tab, you should see your previous version, latest version, and button to update

As above make sure, you have backed up first, updated all available extensions ;)

Alternatively, you can manually update.
Find more information and links to the manual update files here - https://www.joomla.org/announcements/re ... -9-25.html

Hi Sandstorm871

Thanks for your reply, I have cleared the cache etc and when I go to Joomla Update it shows latest as 3.9.21 still, I have made sure channel is default but still no update, I have stopped getting the joomla update emails regarding Joomla updates too but I haven't changed anything.
Not sure what has happened but seems I need to use manual 3.9.x to 3.9.25

Kind Regards
Rob

Go to Extensions - Manage - Update Sites and check that the following sites are enabled:
  • Joomla! Core
  • Joomla! Update Component Update Site
Go also to Extensions - Plugins and check if the plugin Quick Icon - Joomla Update Notification is enabled. This plugin is responsible for Joomla update notifications in the Control Panel.

Hi Toivo

I checked all that you said and all was enabled apart from Joomla! Core, should I just enable or backup before I enable?

Kind Regards
Rob

Enable Joomla! Core and back up the website before you update, just in case.

Check also the discussion at Discuss Joomla! 3.9.25 and the 3.9.25 FAQ.
