So, if you like to do the updates right away when you log into your WordPress blog, I would wait two weeks, and back up your blog daily, not just using the default backup service your hosting provider provides. Use the Jetpack backup feature which costs like $10 per month or something (that’s if your website is making money). If you really rely on your blog to make money, this is important. It is important to wait at least two weeks from any new release of a plugin before updating, just so the developer has time to fix any problems with their update if it has any. Anyways, below I will explain exactly how to get rid of the endless updates that never stop loading… check it out.
In the image above I had already fixed the problem, but before that, I would tell WordPress to update the updates, and the loading bar in Chrome would be continuously loading forever and ever. I wondered how could this be?, it was only two updates.
Guess what fixed the problem though?. I simply right clicked on the tab and clicked on “New Tab on the right”, and it stopped loading and the updates finished. Hopefully that works for you, or if that didn’t work try right-clicking on the Updates icon and open a new tab, and that worked for me. What ever you do, during an update in WordPress, do not click Stop in your browser to stop loading the updates, because if the updates stop half way through your blog will go into maintenance mode and won’t be loadable, so you will need to log into your WordPress site via FTP and manually disable the plugins yourself and reinstall them. This has happened to me many times. Anyways, I hope this helped you, make sure you Like, Share and Subscribe!. Thanks.
