    Upgrade! It's amazing how issues like this go away when you upgrade even if they haven't been specifically fixed! Commented May 14, 2013 at 12:05
  • Are there accessories or other add-ons that have visibility limited to Super Admins? Commented May 14, 2013 at 13:47
  • I too would recommend upgrading if possible. But when you do, be sure to upgrade all of your addons (I typically upgrade addons before EE).

Is this a new issue? By chance, are you running NSM Addon Updater and any of P&T's add-ons? We had a similar-sounding issue with a number of our installs when P&T moved over to devot-ee -- SuperAdmins would be the only ones affected assuming they are the only ones you are letting see the NSM Addon Updater info. We disabled NSM Addon Updater and everything went back to normal.


Thats for the feedback, upgraded to 2.6 and we ended up with more errors. Turned out the server admin had messed around with fastcgi on the server and once those changes were rolled back our upgrade worked ok.So a combination of the fast cgi fix and the upgrade solved our issue.
