I am trying to:
Update to most current versions of toolset plugins.

I first tried to update all Toolset plugins. Site crashed. WordPress emailed error below. I then restored a backup. Tried updating one at a time. Started with Views. Crashed again. I then restored.

Hi Marge,

From what I see on your site you are using the latest versions of our stable release.

The only update that is available is for an update to the Beta plugins which I do not recommend being used on a live production environment.

At this point there is no need to update your Toolset plugins.



My issue is resolved now. Thank you!


This error still happens in the latest release, it should have been investigated, when reported by @margep6083
Now it brought down all sites where Toolset updated automatically or where people updated CRED and Access.
