If your WordPress site shows you have an update available, but none can be found in themes or plugins, you can use this snippet to debug the issue.

/** * Debug Pending Updates * * Displays hidden plugin and theme updates on update-core screen. */ function debug_pending_updates() { // Rough safety nets if ( ! is_user_logged_in() || ! current_user_can( 'update_plugins' ) || ! current_user_can( 'update_themes' ) ) return; $output = ""; // Check plugins $plugin_updates = get_site_transient( 'update_plugins' ); if ( $plugin_updates && ! empty( $plugin_updates->response ) ) { foreach ( $plugin_updates->response as $plugin => $details ) { $output .= " Plugin $plugin is reporting an available update. "; } } // Check themes wp_update_themes(); $theme_updates = get_site_transient( 'update_themes' ); if ( $theme_updates && ! empty( $theme_updates->response ) ) { foreach ( $theme_updates->response as $theme => $details ) { $output .= " Theme $theme is reporting an available update. "; } } if ( empty( $output ) ) $output = "No pending updates found in the database."; echo " Pending updates " . $output; } add_action( 'core_upgrade_preamble', 'debug_pending_updates' );
