Seems like this issue persists no matter how many times I update. As I enter my dashboard almost 100% of the times I get a notification on a WordPress update. It also shows at the bottom of the page. It disappears as soon as I hit the button "check again" or sometimes just by entering the updates page.

Why does it happen so often? Its annoying and I would like to know if there is any easy fix for this.

Thank you.

  • Are you talking about the DB upgrade or the update itself? Have you seen this? I suspect this is probably a cache issue, is this possible?

  • No, it always says that there is a new version of wordpress available. But as soon as I reload the page it goes back to "you have the latest version installed". It sometimes disappears just by entering the updates page.

  • Do you have caching on the Server? Have a look at this

  • No, it didnt work. I logged in today and Im seeing the update core notification despite I have the latest version. By entering the update page it disappeared.

I experienced this problem and found that W3 Total Cache was the culprit. Deactivating and reactivating the plugin cured the problem. Hat tip to this forum for the clue.
