Updated three Joomla websites (so far) from J! 3.9.6 to J! 3.9.8 without any problems. Front- and back-end access all seem to work OK. Thanks, everyone.

UPDATE: Updated another half-dozen websites from J! 3.9.6 to J! 3.9.8 without any problems. Tip: Make sure that you "check for updates" in case the Joomla! Update component shows the latest update is J! 3.9.7. ;)

Updated both "live" and "local" sites from 3.9.6 to 3.9.8 directly without issue.

Thank you to those involved :)

Did you click the Check for Updates button?
And I'd clear Joomla cache too.

That's a weid problem. It guess that it's some local server issue.

Your Joomla site has a file called administrator/manifests/files/joomla.xml
that defines Joomla's update servers:

Code: Select all

<updateservers>
<server name="Joomla! Core" type="collection">https://update.joomla.org/core/list.xml</server>
</updateservers>
The URL https://update.joomla.org/core/list.xml tells your Joomla site where to look if there are any updates:

Code: Select all

<extension name="Joomla" element="joomla" type="file" version="3.9.8" targetplatformversion="3.9" detailsurl="https://update.joomla.org/core/sts/extension_sts.xml"/>


And in https://update.joomla.org/core/sts/extension_sts.xml it speficies the new versions + downloads

Code: Select all

<update>
<name>Joomla! 3.9</name>
<description>Joomla! 3.9 CMS</description>
<element>joomla</element>
<type>file</type>
<version>3.9.8</version>

<targetplatform name="joomla" version="3.[789]"/>
<php_minimum>5.3.10</php_minimum>
</update>
Does your site uses any server cache or proxy?
So that Joomla keeps seeing / using to the old Joomla version information that was on https://update.joomla.org/core/sts/extension_sts.xml before the J3.9.8 update?

I would test that by using ssh to log in into that server, and investigate the output of

Code: Select all

curl https://update.joomla.org/core/sts/extension_sts.xml
Of course you could also ask your hosting company.

Just in case anyone else has my problem. I logged into Adminsitrator and then manually forced Joomla Updates to check for newer version of software. It initially report

Installed version: 3.9.8
Update version: 3.9.6

but after force refresh to check for new updates...finally reporting latest version installed and now running 3.9.11.
