    Version 1.36.1

    That is not an Easy Updates Manager version. Are you using 6.1.8?

    Dang! Sorry. I pulled the version from the wrong plugin. It’s running 6.1.8

    For some undetermined reason, the Easy Updates Manager plugin is working again as of 8:30pm CST.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks again.

    If you deactivate Easy Updates Manager does this still happen?

    I have a feeling that EUM is the symptom, not the cause. The error usually happens when WordPress can’t write to the filesystem.

    All EUM does is allow the background updates to happen and WordPress sends out the debug errors.

    I don’t get why it sometimes works and other times, not. If I deactivate the plugin, it won’t run at all.

    Sorry for the late reply. This error was related to WordPress and was fixed a few versions ago. If you are on the most recent version of WordPress and EUM then everything should work.

    I’m getting the same error now using latest version of WP and EUM.
    The notification email is conflicting:

    Same for me, @obliterator. It’s sometimes due to a file permission issue or a specific plugin. EUM should not report the update as successful when it clearly is not.

    (@obliterator)

    Yes its quite confusing!

    Now I’m not sure if its updated the plugin properly or not. WordPress indicates the plugin is the latest version but is that because EUM has just bumped the version number reference up? No way of knowing if its actually installed the updated plugin files. I’m hoping so!

    Hope the author can get to the bottom of this. Happy to provide any logs/info to help.

    I got a second email shortly afterwards with blank information:

    This is resolved because it is a WordPress bug, not an EUM one. EUM currently sends out zero emails. Everything you are geting is from WordPress itself.

Can you please assist?
Many thanks.

Hi @toggerybob

Can you please link to the threads instead of posting their content?
This sounds like it could be caused by an updates-related plugin doing things wrong, causing WordPress's automatic updates to fail. It sounds like a plugin author may be blaming core, if that's the case, the plugin author needs to come to us with steps to reproduce the issue.

#2 @toggerybob

This is the plugin and author. They have no interest in pursuing the issue unfortunately:
https://wordpress.org/plugins/stops-core-theme-and-plugin-updates/

Is there another plugin that does the same?

Thanks again.
