phpList is in maintenance mode

Suddenly I get phpList is in maintenance mode. Please try again in half an hour.
Running phpList 3.4.3
No, I don’t have any field in database that has maintenancemode line.
I’ve disabled the autoupdater in the config.php.
I’m stuck.
Btw, the updater is not working.
I’m running in Xampp 7.3.5-1 on Windows server 2008 R2.

Ok, had to go with phpmyadmin into the database and search.
The maintenancemode is not a boolean but says something like “update in progress” or such.
This is really retarded.
The updater doesn’t work and when run and stuck, it takes a database surgery to get it functional again.
There’s gotta be a better way.

Hi, welcome to the forums.

This question was raised only yesterday and resolved by the original poster.
