Joomla Next not updating

Post by cfrpc » Mon Aug 15, 2022 5:20 pm

I am currently running a web page published on GoDaddy using Joomla v3.9.18. “Joomla Next” update channel indicates Joomla 3.9.18 is the most current version. I know that is incorrect. Other than my downloading and installing 20 versions of Joomla, is there an easier way to accomplish updating Joomla? Obviously, I am very much a novice.

Have you previously tried to update from J3.9.18? If so did it fail and now wont update?

I am currently running on J3.9.18. I am trying to update to more current versions. I presume I need to use the "Upgrade Package" for J3.9.18 or can I jump to J3.9.28?

Thank you, I have set the Default Channel to Joomla Next but nothing has changed.

But
1. Have you previously tried and failed?
or
2. Never tried and failed because you can't see an update?

Clear the update cache; rebuild the list of Index Sites.

#2 Never tried and failed because I cannot see an update for Joomla past 3.9.18. At least not from in Joomla update. I can see newer versions in "Joomla Help, Latest version Check" but frankly, I am a little hesitant to go down that path as my expertise is low. I know Joomla Update is working as I just received an update notice for Akeeba Backup and that update was successful.

Download https://downloads.joomla.org/cms/joomla ... ackage.zip

Make a backup of your site

Go to Joomla update --> Upload and install -- Choose the file you downloaded --> give pw and install

After installation goto "Maintenance" (extensions tab) and click repair DB. You should now be on latest Joomla 3.10 and from here you can continue your journey to Joomla 4
