I renewed my subscription and I am getting "Unexpected HTTP status 403 Wordpress" when attempting to update to 1.9.3. I deleted cookies in Chrome (to the beginning of time) to no effect.

I was able to back up the site under 1.9.1

Thank you for the help.

I use this on three sites. I am able to update it on at least one of them.

We had a problem with a bad build this morning and two versions went up back to back. The cache of the CDN information should be expiring very soon now. Once that happens, you should be able to update as expected. I'm getting the same 403 error on my Wordpress site now.
