When I try to run an update from Joomla 3.4.8 to 3.6.5, I get

the archive file is corrupt, truncated or archive parts are missing

and then it just spins.

Googling is not a ton of help. Permissions are set correctly on /tmp.

Upload and post are set to 30M.

I have the full path to /tmp listed in configuration.php.

This is Windows Server 2016, PHP 5.6.38

Any ideas?

  • For future miserable souls like I was - I manually uploaded the updated package into /tmp and then ran the update from /index.php?option=com_joomlaupdate. Worked just fine! – user2403104 Oct 12 '18 at 16:47
