I was able to successfully update a site from 3.5.1 to 3.6.0 using the Live Update. However, when I attempted to update the same site to 3.6.1 a few minutes later, I was given a page stating:

An error has occurred.

403 Access forbidden.

What can I do to get the latest update?

1 Answer 1

  1. Go to Components > Joomla! Update.
  2. On the "Live Update" tab, click the link to the update file to download it locally.
  3. Click the "Upload & Update" tab.
  4. Click the "Browse" button to navigate to the file you just downloaded.
  5. Click the "Upload & Install" button.
  6. Click "Clear Cache".
  7. Navigate back to Components > Joomla! Update to ensure you get a No updates available message.

Note: If you are using Akeeba Backup, make sure you don't have the "System - Backup on update" plugin enabled before proceeding with the update.
