A large number of my sites will not upgrade from version 5.6.0 to 5.6.3 using either the Joomla Update method or via MyJoomla.

Manually installing using the Upload Package File or Install from URL methods seems to work ok

Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

Please double check your download ID: if you are currently logged inside our site the install from URL will always work fine.
I suspect you enter the wrong value inside the component options.
