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
    • phpmyadmin
  2. Click on the options table (your prefix may be different than wp_)
    • wpoptions
  3. Search for core_updater.lock and delete the row.
    • coreupdaterdelete
  4. Try updating the site again.
