Just upgraded to and now "shipping methods" screen will not CONTINUE when CONTINUE button pushed during ordering - site is broken and no orders coming in - YIKES. Error messages coming into admin say:

Payment transaction failed.

Reason Please specify a shipping method.

Checkout Type onepage

THANKS MAgento Angels!

Look in this directory: /app/design/frontend/YOURSITE/default/layout/

See if there are the following files in there: "paypal.xml" and "checkout.xml"... delete those if they are there. (Make a backup copy of them first of course.)


found this solution and it worked for me :-)

After look in everywhere I found out it was just an update on the layout. I went to /app/design/frontend/base/default/template/checkout/onepage/payment.phtml and changed that around the line 36:

adding the id “checkout-payment-method-load” to fieldset so change line 36 from fieldset to fieldset id="checkout-payment-method-load"
