Today 2.0.3 was released and we've been trying out some Magento 2 installations on a development VPS.

There are multiple installations, but I can't seem to upgrade any of them.

At first we had some issues with the deployment, but after that had settled, every installation acts the same:

We open System > Web Setup Wizard and select System Upgrade.

After a few moments all we see is a error-box saying

Sorry, we can't take that action right now

With no further errors/logs (nor in the console or syslogs).

I tried to do the same in production mode, hoping that would amount to anything, but alas..

Anyone else has problems running this update? Magento 2 has been a tough nut to crack so far with the server-settings and all, but we've managed to get it rolling smoothly, so I wonder why this isn't working.

Any ideas where to look for answers?

Before system upgrade you have to setup System Configuration

You have to setup Public Access key and private access key from here

Now you can do system upgrade.

If there will be any cron setup issue. Resolve to setup cron. How to setup cron ?

  • Wow, how stupid of me to not think of this. Thanks! I'm trying it right away. Would be a plus for Magento to remind people of this in the error message, in stead of "nope, can't do it.".
