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.
