I have a WordPress website that is using v5.22.0 of CiviCRM, it was a fresh install and this is my first time trying to upgrade it.

To upgrade to v5.29.1 I followed all steps to the letter: https://docs.civicrm.org/sysadmin/en/latest/upgrade/wordpress/

When I attempt the final step to upgrade the database which is to point your browser to the URL http://example.org/wp-admin/admin.php?page=CiviCRM&q=civicrm/upgrade&reset=1 (obviously replacing example.org with our domain) I get the error message and there is no Upgrade Now button:

Sorry, due to an error, we are unable to fulfill your request at the moment. You may want to contact your administrator or service provider with more details about what action you were performing when this occurred. Your database has already been upgraded to CiviCRM 5.22.0

Am I done? Is there no database upgrade to be done between v5.22.0 and v5.29.1? Everything appears to be working on the front / backend.... did I do it properly?

    It looks like it's not picking up the new code base - there is always an upgrade- you don't still have the old code 'somewhere' on you system do you? There should be a file in your civi dir xml/version.xml with the version....

  • Found a copy of the old codebase! Got rid of that and working now, thank you.

Just adding an answer - which is actually from the comments - since I think stackexchange doesn't like answers in the comments - anyway - the issue was an extra copy of the codebase
