Basically its a simple button to click on that then fetches either the core or patch (you get to choose) to /tmp then overwrites your current installation.
Its never let me down until this morning, there it was flashing away with “Click to update Joomla” however today I got “There was a problem fetching Joomla zip file Joomla_1.5.3_to_1.5.11-Stable-Patch_Package.zip was used for updating joomla core.
Error : ‘PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature’There was a problem updating joomla to the latest version”.
I’ve had a look on Google and yes there are lots of posts with PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT but I cant believe they are the reason as I’m using firefox, I doubt Joomla has a bad zip file, my hosting service has not changed anything.
What is strange is realtyna.com who make the updater is down or dead? Perhaps the updater module is at fault?
