My website is running on WordPress version 4.9.8.

When I go to <mysite>/wp-admin/update-core.php, it says,

You have the latest version of WordPress. Future security updates will be applied automatically.

I want to upgrade my site to version 5.0.x

How can I do that?

It looks like you have already tried to update WordPress but the process broked. So to resolve your problem you can go with the following: 1. Click to "Re-install now" button and install WordPress again. 2. Click to " Download" and install the WordPress manually.


You can install Latest WordPress manually, don't delete your wp-content folder and unzip the file from https://wordpress.iorg/latest.zip.
