I am unable to update solo 1.2.2 to 1.3.
The message I get is: cURL library error #3: malformed
I have tried with all PHP versions available to me 5.4 to 5.6, with the same result.

I have verified the download ID.

I will do the update manually, but I guess there is a problem there somewhere.

Thank you.

Kind regards,


You are correct. The problem has been identified and should be fixed in 1.3.1. I think you will have to manually update 1.3.1 also, but Nicholas' message was not completely clear about that.
