How to fix: “WordPress 6.x.x is available! Please notify the site administrator”. or Not being able to update or delete WordPress core or the plugins.

Go to your WordPress website’s wp-config.php file and check, if you have define( 'DISALLOW_FILE_MODS', true ); . This stops WordPress from updating any of the WordPress core files or plugin files. If you try to update your WordPress core, it will give an error saying, “WordPress 6.x.x is available! Please notify the site administrator“. and if you check under the plugins section, it will not have the option to update or delete the plugins, but only the option to activate or deactivate the plugins.

Do not worry, the solution is very simple. You just have to edit the wp-config.php file and change the DISALLOW_FILE_MODS value to false. i.e. define( ‘DISALLOW_FILE_MODS’, false);.
