Unable to upgrade the Universal Plugin Manager Plugin

My Jira installation reports that a newer version of the Universal Plugin Manager is available but when I click on "Update Now!", nothing happens.

I also have three user installed plugins which are also reported as having available updates, but neither have the "update button". When I press the "Update All" in the overall heading, they all fail with the message; "Could not install plugin from unknown plugin. The URI must be absolute." The plugins are all Atlassian plugins.

I see the following in the logs;

Jira: v5.1.5#784-sha1:6c72993 standalone

Any ideas where I should start looking?

Hi Sara

This is actually a know bug issue with the UPM version of 2.1.5 in UPM-1931
This can be fix by updating the UPM to version 2.2 manually by download the jar or copy the jar URL from the Plugin Exchange and then install it through the "Install Plugin" dialog. -source from Ben

This question had been answered regarding the the UPM 2.1.5 by Ben Woskow.
