How to: Remove the “An automated WordPress update has failed to complete – please attempt the update again now.” message from WordPress

I’ve had some issues with automatic updates in WordPress and I’m kind of blaming Godaddy for it. When I was using my previous hosting provider all the updates always worked from within the application but now either a folder can’t be created / deleted, it get’s stuck… I don’t know anymore. Regardless, Jetpack wasn’t able to get automatically updated so I got the “An automated WordPress update has failed to complete – please attempt the update again now.” message. I went ahead and performed a manual update but now that message remains there and won’t go away.

Solution:

  1. Make sure you delete the appropriate directory within the “./wp-content/upgrade” folder
  2. Edit the .maintenance on the root directory to make sure the entry for the upgrade in progress that failed is removed
That should do the trick!
