I am trying to update the backup sofware. I manually upgraded it to 1.3.1 and now it is showing as 1.3.0 for some reason. Anyway, when I click on Update Now it gives me this error:

cURL library error #3: malformed

On previous tickets I saw that you need to have the latest PHP and Open SSL versions. I have 5.5.25 of PHP and 0.9.7 of OpenSSL according to my hosting company.

Any suggestions?

That install bug is supposed to be fixed in 1.3.1 so I think maybe something went wrong with the upgrade. Go ahead and manually upgrade to 1.3.3, that will include the previous changes so all should be well for the next upgrade.
