I'm trying to update a new site I'm developing from 2.5.3 to 2.5.4 and I'm getting a "waiting for server" message and the retry count keeps going up. I've left it to do its thing for a while now and nothing happens. Anyone else seeing this and do you know why it's happening or have a solution to fix it?
DevDemon noted yesterday that the file format for EE has changed with the 2.5.4 release and that they'd be working on an update to Updater.
From conversations on Twitter, it looks like EllisLab has changed the format of the the file back, so if you re-download 2.5.4 it should work.
I'm not sure why this happened but I had to move on so I started from a fresh default install and everything worked fine.
