Plugin keeps on updating although it has already updated!

Hello everyone,

I updated a plugin in confluence and the first try to update failed sad then i decided to update the Plugin manually and it worked. Everything was fine. An hour later i wanted to try another plugin and i entered the addon-section. Then the download of the already manually installed plugin startet again and i wasn't able to stop that. Now, everytime i go to my plugin configuration the download starts again. I am not able to manage my other Plugins because of the damn window sad I made it to uninstall the plugin but UPM keeps on downloading that damn thing. if anybody has an idea how i can solve this please help me smile


Here is a screenshot of the window:

Don't think it is a problem with the plugin itself. Might be the UPM. I am guessing it picks up the broken installation every time you go to the add-ons page. Have you tried a restart?

If a restart doesn't help, you might want to try clearing the cache -

A restart of my confluence?

Not yet smile

I'll try it right now and let you know  if it worked.

thanks in advance smile

Restart worked smile smile

thank you so much for your advice. i gues clearing cache would have been also worked, but wasn't necessary.

Thanks to both of you for your great support smile


Always worth trying a restart first :-)
