Good evening,

I would like to know if it is normal to have the message: "WordPress 5.9.3 is available! Please inform the site administrator or administrator." Because I am the "only" administrator of this website.

Could you please help me? Do I have to do something to update my WordPress site or do I just have to wait until you update your interface?

Best regards,

Welcome to trac!!

A message that an update to WordPress is available is normal.

However, if your account has role administrator, then the message normally reads:

WordPress 5.9.3 is available! Please update now.

(where "Please update now" is a link to the admin screen where you can manually perform the update).

Since you're seeing the

WordPress 5.9.3 is available! Please notify the site administrator.

message, that means that something is preventing your account from updating WordPress.

The most likely culprits are either: 1) for some reason your admin account does not have the update_core capability that all administrator accounts normally have, or 2) that the DISALLOW_FILE_MODS constant is defined and true in your wp-config.php file.

I'm sorry that you're having troubles, but since this doesn't appear to be a bug in WordPress core, I suggestion you ask your question on the support forums and someone can help you there. Feel free to mention this trac ticket when you ask in the forums.
