Failure to upgrade extensions from Browser

I am running Foswiki-2.0.1, Plugin API version 2.3

When I login to my Fowswiki installation I get a warning:

Warning: Updates found for 17 extension(s)

I click on Upgrade button that loads /bin/configure. I then navigate to:
  • Extensions on left side
  • Extension Operation and Maintenance Tab
  • Install, Update or Remove Extensions SubTab
  • Click on "Review Installed Extensions" button
At this point I see a in page popup with a list of extensions and mouse cursor is always spinning.
  • But I can still proceed and I do by clicking on one plugin that has a newer version avaialble. For example, SmiliesPlugin.
  • Click on "Upgrade" button
I observe waiting for the server message. Please, be patient.

Then: Don't forget to save your configuration to complete installation of SmiliesPlugin

Installation finished

{Plugins}{SmiliesPlugin}{Enabled} = 1

{Plugins}{SmiliesPlugin}{Module} = Foswiki::Plugins::SmiliesPlugin

I don't see Save button anywhere.
  • Click on "Close" button of popup
The message dissapears, but popup stays. I loaded Chrome's Debugger and see no error message on Console.
  • Click on "Close" button again.
Popup is gone. I still see no "Save" button anywere. So, my changes fail to apply.

Actually, there is a "Save" button in the top right corner to the right of Search, but it is disabled. I clicked on it anyway. Hmm That's something I did differently compared to last times and it appears that plugin is installed. I opened a new tab, got the same 17 exttensions message. However, when I repeate my update procedure SmilesPlugin is marked as up to date.

so, Originally I was going to ask how I am supposed to update, but it appears that I am supposed to click on disabled Save button.

A number of fixed have been done on Configure in 2.0.2 and 2.0.3. I don't recall this particular issue. I'd suggest upgrading to Foswiki 2.0.3.

Thank you. I am sorry for obvious question, but do you have a link to upgrade instructions? I am still having hard time navigating through help system.

Never mind. Upgrade instructions are part of main Download link.

I made an update to 2.0.3, but I have lost any track of what it was.
