Joomla Core Update not showing for a new user group

Hello, I have been using Joomla for over 10 years so I am no newbie BUT today I have hit an odd one.

I have created a new user group for a client so that I could restrict certain bits until they get their head around it.

I have enabled permissions for several components, extensions etc etc and the Joomla Core Update all permissions are allowed for the user BUT upon them Logining in, this option does not show :eek: - why?

Could someone tell me if this is a bug please I am using 3.9.2 Joomla version and like I say I have followed the same path for other extensions which are working fine just not the core update.

Thank you very much in advance

Debs :D

Hi Debs,

Nice to know you are a fan of Joomla! Every once in a while, when I add a user group, I forget to go into Access Levels and be sure it's set there too.

Is the new user group on its own without a parent group or is it under Administrator?

Even if the Joomla! Update item is not shown in the back end menu, what happens if you browse to the URL http://example.com/administrator/index. ... omlaupdate, where example.com is the domain name of your site?

OK so if I follow that link then you can find the update but I want the client, if the update is available to be able to see it and click on it to run it.

Why is it not showing?
