Plugin update stalled

An update to the Jira Automation plugin is stalled / hanging.  It's been like this for 30 minutes at least.

Any guidance on how to get out of this?   As far as I can tell, Jira is working generally for users.  But we do rely on the automation plugin rather heavily.

Hi James,

welcome to Atlassian Community and thanks for bringing this challenging nuisance up.

A slow update of App is from my experience heavily depending on memory settings and of the daytime - especially meaning if people are currently using the system.

For updating Apps meanwhile I always would recommend announcing downtime as well as communicating the change log. Even in cases where no breaking changes were announces by the vendor there has been seen some - not for Automation but more speaking in general.

A good hint is to observer atlassian-jira.log when upgrading an App. This outputs lots of information to log - maybe you can gather details there on why it is stuck. Or - what me also left back wondering the first times I encountered it - it just takes the time it takes (depending on the power of the system and user activity, like said in the beginning).
30 minutes is not very common on the other hand and I would be curious if logs tell something specific.
Also of interest would be if this happens regularly on your system or if this is a current thing which after a clean reboot would not re-surface any further.
