I am notified in my admin view of my Wordpress site that I have 1 available update for both the site and plugins (in my Network Admin Dashboard there '1' in red circles next to 'Plugins' and 'Updates')... But when I try to go to both the updates page & Plugins page, the homepage appears? The URL at that point is http:///wp-admin/network/update-core.php/, and http:///wp-admin/plugins.php/ respectively.

I can therefore never arrive at the true updates page, and cannot update my Wordpress or plugins. How can I get the updates or Plugins page to appear?

    It is hard to guess what might be wrong with it, since obviously in normal situation it should work. I would try disabling plugins/switching to default theme.

  • Same thing happens in default theme, and the same thing happens for the plugins page (about to update question with that).

I've since found my own solution: Delete the .htaccess file in the Wordpress root directory. I've written more details in a post on my blog at cellepo.com.
