Update page error

I have just upgraded to 3.8 and when I go to the Updates page I get the following:

Last checked on December 19, 2013 at 11:32 am.

You have the latest version of WordPress.

Fatal error: Cannot access parent:: when current class scope has no parent in [...]/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-upgrader-skins.php on line 594

I completely replaced the entire WP install with a freshly unzipped copy, and removed all custom plugins (of which there were only two: openid and wp-recaptcha), but the above error remains.

PHP version 5.3.27 by the way.

  • Version changed from 3.8 to 3.7

Are you running any PHP accelerators (APC/eAccelerator, etc)? and are they up to date?

I can't tell why this error is being triggered, the class definitely has a parent in scope..

What environment are you running this on? LAMP, XAMPP, IIS, etc?

Same question as @dd32, are you running APC?

Can you attach a phpinfo()?

Thanks for your help with this!

eAccelerator is installed, and we're using Apache on Linux.

Oh, and I have upgraded to 3.8 successfully, this error isn't appearing when I try to do that. The codebase is definitely all 3.8's.

After reading https://bugs.php.net/bug.php?id=56529
I touched wp-admin/includes/class-wp-upgrader-skins.php
and the page displays correctly, until I reload the next time.
