some plugin updates fail

I wanted to update backupbuddy from the HUB but it generated a "plugin update failed" error , by logging into the websites' wp admin the update worked well as usual. I already encountered that error on another site as well

please give it a try

    Hello there Claudio,

    hope you're doing good! :slight_smile:

    I just tried to replicate this in a site of mine and after installing a previous version of BackupBuddy plugin and used our licence, I got the prompt for update in /wp-admin/update-core.php.
    I then navigated to Hub and the update notification was there too.
    Updating the plugin from Hub was successful in my first try.

    I wonder if this was a temporary glitch, so if possible, don't update the plugin from WP admin area and try to give it another try from Hub.

    If this continues, then I'd advise to create a staging environment of the affected site into another location/folder in the same server, using a separate database, and proceed with a conflict test in there. Meaning, deactivate all other plugins apart from WPMUDEV Dashboard and BackupBuddy, one by one, and try to update from Hub each time.

    Warm regards,

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.
