While attempting to update from 2.1.3 from 2.1.2 I receive the following error during the extraction process:

Invalid AJAX data: Invalid archive type or extension in file

Any suggestions? I've tried multiple sites with the same result.

I believe you are affected by a bug in the restore.php file in versions 2.1.2 and 2.1.3. This file is responsible for extracting JPA, JPS and ZIP files and is used for integrated restoration and updates. The only way around it is to extract the update locally and update the extracted files into Akeeba Backup for WordPress' directory.

Thanks Nic..
Does this mean 2.1.3 to 2.1.4 will also be a manual upgrade?
