See a sure-fire way to update your site to WordPress 4.9.9 while using the Easy Updates Manager plugin.
See the video tutorial below for the correct Easy Updates Manager settings.
Don’t be fooled by your site stating that the only update available is to 5.0.1 anywhere.
The At a Glance module on the Dashboard will show the version you are running correctly.
Tips for making the update go through
If you’ve waited :15 minutes and your site has not updated, try these two tricks.
Tip 1: In the EUM plugin, on the top setting for all updates, set it to Disable and then back to Enable. That seems to make it wake up and check for an update again. (Huge thank you to Marilyn Lesniak for that tip!!!!!!!!!!!)
Tip 2: Or, if your traffic has low traffic, maybe the wp-cron clock has not been triggered to run. That’s the master clock that triggers all scheduled site functions like checking for updates, doing backups, and publishing scheduled post.
In an incognito window, or while logged out, visit your site. That will trigger the wp-cron to run.
This is a security update, so don’t put this off!!!
