We are consistently running into failure notices on every attempt (multiple sites) to do an internal upgrade for Akeeba WP 2.3.2 to 2.3.3. Consistent failure on every site on which we have attempted this upgrade.

Screenshot of JSON Parse error notification attached.

Switching over to a manual upgrade (deactivate, delete, re-upload, reinstall, reactivate) severs the connection to previous backups made to the home server (we backup both to the host server so that our clients have access to backup files, and then, alternatively, to our own server in the cloud for emergency restores if the server fails.

Thank you.
