Not being able to update.

Post by lea_cardenas » Wed Oct 07, 2015 5:12 pm


I have being making a new website with joomla. My joomla is in the last update the Joomla update have, the problem is when I want to update some modules, plugins, extensions or components.

None want to update. In the other website I have they have updated fine. In this case the masseges thats pops up is:

-Update: :Extension: Could not open
-Invalid extension update
Before updating ensure that the update is compatible with your Joomla! installation. (I have done it)

If anyone can tell me what the problem might be.

Thank you.

It sounds unlikely that you have installed a new Joomla 1.0.x site. Which version did you install?

The 1.0 version of Joomla expired about 10 years ago and does not contain an updater.
