    Hey Julius,

    Hope you're doing well today! Happy to help with this.

    Have you checked your server error log? It will likely show an error or warning that relates to this.

    Or you can try turning wp_debug to "true" and then trying the update, then it should show you the warning right on the whitescreen that you get. https://codex.wordpress.org/WP_DEBUG

    Lastly, it could be a plugin conflict, in which case you can try deactivating all plugins first then doing the update.

    Hope this helps! If you try those possibilities and it's still happening then let us know and we'll have another look :slight_smile:
