Hi Akeeba,

At the moment I can not update Akeeba Backup Pro 3.6.0 to a higher version, due to a message in the plugin overview.
See attachment.

It says: There is a new version available, but it requires a newer version of PHP or WordPress than the one you have. As a result it will not be installed.

Howerver, I'm running WordPress 5.3.2 and PHP 7.3.11, which should be good enough.

How can I solve this issue?

Thanks in advance, kind regards, Burt
