are you sure you checked the right tab?
Because from your about page it seems WordPress is still Notifying you to update version to 4.9.1

Hi @bikram_sth and welcome to Trac.

Unfortunately this doesn't seem like a WordPress problem, but rather something with your host.

It sounds like wp-includes/version.php is being reverted to the 4.8.4 version periodically, OR, your host is running a PHP Opcache which needs to be cleared.

I'm going to mark this as worksforme, but if updating to 4.9.1 again through WordPress doesn't help, I believe you'll need to contact your host to see if there's something wrong on their end.

bikram_sth was probably just refering to the wording. The text says "Thank you for updating to the latest version!" (meaning 4.8.4) which however isn't actually the latest version (anymore).

Hi @dd32 , yes it may be due to cache but the update to latest version is completed, its just the version seen in the text. After reloading the same page it shows latest version there too without running update again.
