Illegal string offset error in updater

Recommended Posts


This site has had no changes other than standard updates and never had this error until now: Wordfence Live Activity: Warning: Illegal string offset 'pagelines-updater' in /home/hoffman/public_html/wp-content/plugins/pagelines-updater/libs/product-updates.php on line 211 Warning: Illegal string offset 'version' in /home

I've enabled debug in DMS but not sure where to grab that. Haven't yet, but can, enable debug in wpconfig if required.

I'm running WP 4.6, DMS Version: 2.2.4 and Updater  Version 1.2.9.  I could just disable that plugin. But since I've never seen this before I thought it might be a known issue we could fix. I imagine there won't be many more updates, if any, so should I simply disable it?

Here's the rest of the site info gleaned via BackupBuddy:

Thats only a php warning and can be ignored, if you have wp_debug off you shouldnt even see it.
