Hi, I've manually upgraded via ftp the latest version of Mage_Core_Modules. It seems that everything is working fine, however when I open magento connect and check for upgrades in order to update other modules, it shows that Magento_Core_Modules version is still 184.108.40.206 instead of the newly updated 220.127.116.11. Even if I rename the package.xml file, included within the update archive, in Mage_Core_Modules-18.104.22.168 and place it in var/package, magento connect still doesn't recognize the upgrade. Am I missing some step?
Thanks for the help, kind regards.
Did you ever figure this out? We just saw the same on another site we upgraded via SSH.
