Updater is loading Error: robots

currently: Version phpList 3.6.10 tyring to upgrade to 3.6.12

Searched forum and goolge for solution: I’ve done all combinations of robots.txt with and without:
User-agent: *
Disallow: /lists/

present and removed but continue to get this error when attemtping upgrade.

@pancakehollow I think that the updater is complaining about an unexpected file, robots.txt. You need to move it somewhere else before updating.

There have been reports here and on Github about difficulties with upgrading to 3.6.12 Update from 3.6.10 to 3.6.12 via interface · Issue #934 · phpList/phplist3 · GitHub so you might want to leave the update until things become clearer.

Thanks Duncan. I thought it might be something like that. Appreciate the suggestion. Have a good day.

@pancakehollow If you are feeling adventurous you could try the updater provided by the Addons plugin, see plugin:addons [phpList Resources]

It is a bit more flexible than the phplist updater. I use it myself to update a few sites that I manage without problems.
