You can fix this issue either by waiting (usually clears up after an hour or so) or by removing a row from the options table in your WordPress database.


  1. Login to your hosting control panel and open phpMyAdmin
  2. Click on the options table (your prefix may be different than wp_)
  3. Search for core_updater.lock and delete the row.
  4. Try updating the site again.
