Which version did you try to update from?

Did the update stop straight away or after a while?

Are there any details about the update attempt in the log file administrator/logs/joomla_update.log?

Please post the results from the Forum Post Assistant (FPA) by following the instructions at https://forumpostassistant.github.io/docs.

Hello,

here same problem viewtopic.php?t=955431 there the solution was to turn off page-builder.

Otherwise just use the standard .htaccess from joomla and also clean browser and website cache.

Greatings Ron :)

Make sure all your third party components are up to date. Also some hosting prevents outgoing request check to ensure that is not your case.

Check in database table to correct any issues before attempting update again.
