Errors when attempting to update Joomla:
When I run Joomla Update it shows, an update is available (as of right now it shows latest version is 3.9.10).
I always choose the option “write files directly” as with all of our other sites.
Once we attempt to run the update, and Akeeba Backup runs its normal backup prior to upgrading Joomla, The update bar will not advance and an error message says:
“ERROR: Invalid login”
I tried manual upgrades which gave the same result.
One site I visited suggested uploading the update package and updating using FileZilla. Should I do this and update to 3.9.10 using FileZilla as noted in Step C here? https://docs.joomla.org/J3.x:Upgrading_ ... 4.x_to_3.5
NOTE: We operate four other sites that have no problems and are fully up to date.
The affected site https://arkofhopeforchildren.org is currently using:
- Joomla 3.8.6-2018-02-14
Using PHP 7.2.19
