Description

For the new update to WordPress 6.4.3, it does not allow you to manually install a plugin. I get the message "Download failed. A valid URL was not provided."

I noticed this when I tried to install the Core Framework plugin on one website I manage that I had upgraded to the newest version and I got that error. I tried to go to another website I manage that I had not upgraded (it was on 6.4.2) and the plugin installed just fine. I deleted the plugin and upgraded WordPress to version 6.4.3 and I then got that error and the plugin would not install.

Hi @achalmer3, welcome to Trac and thanks for opening this ticket!

I am able to manually install a plugin in WordPress 6.4.3.

To help narrow down the issue, can you try manually installing a different plugin and let us know if that works?

Hi @costdev

I just tried manually installing a different plugin and that one worked. It seems the one I was trying worked with the previous version but not the current version. I will let the developer of that plugin know. Thank you for your quick response

@achalmer3 Thanks very much for your quick testing!

A note for when you speak to the plugin's developers:

6.4.3 includes some stricter checking when manually installing plugins. This may have flagged one of these issues in the plugin's ZIP archive. The ZIP archive may need to be checked for these issues and repaired/rebuilt so that it is installable.


For now, let's close this ticket as invalid (which just means there's nothing actionable right now). If after speaking with the plugin's developers, an issue with WordPress Core is identified, please feel free to drop a comment on this ticket and we can resume the discussion. 🙂

If the plugin folder compressed using MacOS right-click Compress command in the contextual menu, those archives are no longer accepted when using upload plugin. It returns "Incompatible Archive". If I create a zip on the command line of the same folder that works correctly.
