“Update failed: -1” error when trying to update Multisite themes
- This topic is empty.
not sure why this suddenly started happening on WP Multisite?
I don’t see any info how to fix on Google results
the only kinda related post about this error I found
Plugins no longer updating since installing a few big WPMU plugins
I don’t use any WPU plugins btw….
Update: I did same as the guy in that thread, update from Dashboard > Updates instead of the Themes page and it works??
but still cant work from the Themes page
so is this database related correct
hey, I think this is caused by database/transients/caching conflicts usually. you can try to clear all caches including object cache, delete transients, reboot the server… these might help you.
also if for Multisite, you can temporarily load the
/wp-admin/network/themes.php or plugins URL from a child site (using super-admin login) and it might let you run updates even if they are not working properly in the main site.
you can also try clearing your cookies for the main site URL too.

!!! this actually worked for me, THANKS 😀
