I recently manually updated my localhost drupal site from 7.64 to 7.66. I ran update.php without errors. When the process finished, I cleared all cache and checked the status. It still reported 7.64. I then re-ran the manual update and got the same results. When I look at system.info, I see:

; Information added by Drupal.org packaging script on 2019-04-17
version = "7.66"
project = "drupal"
datestamp = "1555533576"

I've noticed other posts (here and here) on the Drupal site that report the same type of symptoms, but, no one has reported a valid solution to resolve this discrepancy. Does anyone know how to get things back in sync?

UPDATE: As part of this process, I successfully updated two other sites I maintain to 7.66. The glaring difference that I need explained is after running update.php on localhost, I do not see "Pending Update" as I did on the other two sites.

  • @NoSssweat - I saw that, but, it does not help me. I think the key is why the update process does not see the pending update.

Try to delete the includes folder and add new includes folder from 7.66 version, bootstrap.inc defines the drupal version.

  • Thanks, but, I took a look at my existing bootstrap.inc and it defines version 7.66.
