Updating a plugin from the Plugin Install Screen throws a JavaScript error

Reported by: imath Owned by: swissspidy
Milestone: 4.9 Priority: normal
Severity: normal Version: 4.6
Component: Upgrade/Install Keywords: has-patch shiny-updates
Focuses: administration Cc:



/wp-admin/js/updates.js when refreshing the screen to decrement the count needs window._wpUpdatesItemCounts to be set. This is done using wp_localize_script() in the regular plugins list table. But this is not done in the plugin *install* list table.

When going into the Plugin Install screen having a plugin to upgrade we get this :


If from there i click on the "Update Now" button, i get this result :


The plugin is updated, but the screen is not refreshed. Bubbles in the WP Admin Bar and in the menu still show there's one plugin to upgrade.


And there's actually a JavaScript error because window._wpUpdatesItemCounts is undefined.

Using the patch i'm adding to this ticket, it's solving the issue.
