First time I've encountered this problem. Stuck! The Wordpress is saying 4.96 is installed. And that it's the latest version of Wordpress. No way to upgrade. Now I know 5.0 is available. I've been upgrading all my other sites.
Figured I'll try the manual way. I downloaded 5.0 and extracted it in the root directory. But the admin is still showing 4.9. I have Sucuri Firewall running and a caching plugin. I cleared cache on all multiple times and tried on different browsers. Still stuck at 4.9
How can I upgrade and/or have it show the correct version?
