How to roll back a plugin upgrade

We have a plugin installed that we upgraded to the most recent version but upon discovering some functionality was removed, would like to roll-back to a prior version. 

We thought it was as simple as uploading the target version but are now unable to administer the plugin (keeps showing that an upgrade is available though on the latest version).

Has anyone ran into a similar situation? Appreciate the help!

You should be able to go to, find the add-on, go to versions, see all versions and download the add-on. Then manually upload the add-on.

Hi Lars, 

Thanks for your reply! I had indeed followed the process you describe above:

went to the atlassian marketplace, picked the verison of the plugin we wanted, uploaded the version of that add-on manually....

but that did not roll back the plugin to a prior version and now the plugin shows the following message:

"Free update (v. undefined) available" 

thought it is on the latest version it shows ias needing an upgrade with the above messaging.
