I ran two updates so far, both went wrong, something with ajax extract error. One at Percent complete 87.3% the other Percent complete 73.1%. The notice disappeared to quick to remember it exactly.
Edit: when I went back to /administrator/index.php and ran the update again it went well.

Hi Peter,

Everything almost OK. I had a problem on 1 site where it shows "Error decoding JSON data: Syntax error' after 3.9.6 to 3.9.7 upgrade.

It's coming from sql update file 3.9.7-2019-05-16.sql that did not work in one case (I updated 16 websites and it only happened once...). So, instead of having "helpsite" parameter updated in params, I got ",," which blows up JSON.

3.9.7-2019-05-16.sql file removes an unofficial helpsite (help.joomla.fr), but instead of clearing its value, it clears the parameter, replacing it with ,,

I have applied the update to 2 sites that were at 3.9.6 and after the update the site still says 3.9.6 as well as the 3rd party Joomla security extension RS-Firewall from RSJoomla.com still say the site is at 3.9.6 instead of 3.9.7. Any one else seeing this?

The "default" update channel is giving me:
Installed Joomla version 3.9.6
Latest Joomla version 3.9.7
Update package URL https://downloads.joomla.org/cms/joomla ... ackage.zip
Additional Information Joomla!

So it is point to the 3.9.6 package even though it says 3.9.7.

3.9.7 update ZIP - incorrect URL

Post by tbob18 » Tue Jun 11, 2019 8:09 pm

Anyone else having this issue? Seems to be using the wrong update URL. If I update manually it seems to work fine.

Yes, I attempted to update a few of my sites today and all have the same problem. I "clicked" on check for updates to see if it might change but it does not. Wrong URL

I have 80+ sites I manage. About 1/2 way through the updates when problems began. FYI, I've tried it on FireFox as well to make sure it wasn't Chrome, but they're now ALL failing.

Like researchware above, I'm getting the button saying 3.9.7 is available. Click that and the updater is picking up 3.9.6 and re-installing that. I've downloaded the 3.9.6 - 3.9.7 patch and it fails. Now nothing I do will update to the latest version.

Yep, that's what I see too jflash - there's something up at the Joomla site I think. I changed the 3.9.6 in the url to 3.9.7 and downloaded the file. Then I installed through the Joomla updater "Upload & Update" tab then Choose File and it installed correctly so the problem is the URL being presented in the updater.

That's what I did as well on one site Rondeb, however, I have 40+ more sites to update - way too tedious and time consuming doing each like that.

OK, this is getting goofy. Now I have an update to 3.9.8 showing (but still wanting to D/L 3.9.6). No mention (yet anyway) on the Joomla site about 3.9.8.

Correct URL please!!!

We released a 3.9.8 a couple of minutes ago because of a bug in the Joomla Version 3.9.7 for french sites.

More information can be found in the PR https://github.com/joomla/joomla-cms/pull/25177

Urls should be updating automatically

Post by dragonrider » Tue Jun 11, 2019 8:31 pm

Yes, I've found this too. Updated to 3.9.7 or so I thought, resulted in updating to 3.9.6 (which it already was), now updated to 3.9.8 successfully.
Thank you Joomla team for sorting this out so quickly.
