Error during update extension COM_INSTALLER_TYPE_TYPE_

Post by emi65 » Thu Jun 28, 2018 8:16 pm

Good morning
I'm using Joomla 3.8.10

PHP 5.6.36
MySQLi 5.5.56-MariaDB


Trying to update two extensions I have these errors
Warning The update path does not exist
Message Update error COM_INSTALLER_TYPE_TYPE_.

As from a previous 3rd I read I tried to clean up the tmp and install one update to the
time but does not change anything

I started to update AcyMailing

Then with the Jevent

Then I updated from 3.8.8 to 3.8.10 (and this went well)

With the update to 3.8.10 then comes the update of the language part and also
I have the same error

thank for your help
Emilio

Check the name of the folder configured under Global Configuration - Server - Path to Temp Folder.

Go to System Information - Folder Permissions and scroll down until you see Temp folder. Make sure that the Temp folder exists and is writable.

You are in right

The problem was in the configuration.php file
The variable tmp_path and Log path was in wrong

I modified these variables in configuration.php and now I'm able to update the package

thanks for your suggestion
