    Hello antony,

    Hope you are doing good today :slight_smile:

    I am sorry to hear for any inconvenience that may cause by this. I just updated the plugin on my own test site and did not get such error on backend, home page, shop page and throughout the process to checkout.

    Could you please tell us where exactly you get this message and steps possibly ?

    Also, it is strongly recommended to apply any updates of existing plugin, theme and even core on a staging WordPress site instead of live/production site.

    If you manage to create a staging site then please send in WordPress admin details and FTP details directly via our contact form in following format.

    You can send the requested details via our secure contact form in following format.
