Incorrect report from UpdatesPlugin


I get the following warning:

Warning: Updates found for 1 extension(s): -1

Normally, when I then review the installed extensions, I can see and update the extensions that have been modified, but now I don't see any updated extensions.

But when I choose "Ignore for 7 days", the message returns after seven days. Is there a way to reset the update mechanism / to see why Foswiki thinks an exension needs to be updated?

There were some known issues with the UpdatesPlugin. These are hopefully fixed in the version that shipped with Foswiki 2.1.6. You don't report the version of Foswiki.

If you are running on 2.1.6 you might need to delete the FOSWIKI_UPDATESPLUGIN cookie to clear some old data.

It's indeed 2.1.6. I'll give it a try by deleting the cookie.
