I just acquired a client who already have a website. I should mantain the website, after having already removed a virus (this alloed me to acquire the client).
Now I have realized that nor WordPress nor themes nor plugins get updates: I don't mean I can't install updates. Simply the updates are not detected.
The installed version of WordPress is 5.3.2 and the update page claim I already have the last version of WordPress!
The same is tru for the plugins: they all are outdated but none get update notice.
My suspect is that the developer had blocked updates some way to avoid problems with eventual conflicts between the theme and updates plugins. But this is not the problem.
I have no idea what I have to look at to unblock updates: There is some hidden setting which can cause this odd behavior? Or can a developer write some code?
Thank you in advance for any idea :)
