Description of my issue:

The latest version, 6.3.0, had to be "installed," not "updated." What is up with that? Seems like a small issue if hosting one site, but to login to more than 50 sites to update, it was a real pain.

We use MyJoomla for mass upgrades and it has served us very well. We place Akeeba and MyJoomla on a pedestal as two real "game changers" that have made website hosting much easier and empowered us to do a lot more work of value with our time.

I hope you understand this is not a complaint, but seeking to understand and resolve a problem - maybe it's just something I'm doing.

I appreciate any help you may offer.

there weren't any "special" changes in the latest version of Akeeba Backup.
Can you please be more specific about your issue? Updates and installation are handled directly by Joomla, our code is not involved in any way.
