I try to upgrade Magento 1.6.2 to 1.7 via Connect.

In the field "extension key to install" i paste: connect20.magentocommerce.com/community/Mage_All_Latest but it nothing happens. Here's a screenshot: http://pbrd.co/16L4iw0

It looks like it want to upgrade to 1.6.2, but as it already is 1.6.2 so nothing change.

Do I use the wrong extension key? Where is my mistake?

The HowTo upgrade I use: http://www.expertmagentodevelopers.com/blog/how-to-upgrade-from-magento-1-6-1-to-1-7-0-using-connect-manager/

  • have you clicked on proceed button? I've not done this actually, but what it shows are dependencies and you need to click "proceed" button in order to install the package

  • @Shathish Yes sure I clicked it. All I got is: "Already installed:..." in the greentext console.

Why you didn't try to check if there are upgrade by clicking of the button "Check for Upgrades" and then apply the upgrades


  • After clicking Check for Upgrades I don't see any upgrade avalible: pbrd.co/16LmEwW

  • Maybe you deleted some content in the "var/packages" folder. There, is stored previous installation packages. Check also eventually access rights of the var folder and downloader folder Sep 26, 2013 at 13:24
  • I checked the access rights they are all fine. and I can't tell if something in var/packages is delited. But as far as I understand it if there is no package in this folder then I also don't see it in the upgrade list. In the meantime I did a manual upgrade that worked. But still interested why this didn't work.
