Steps to reproduce the issue

I am trying to update joomla (by update channel) to 3.10.0-alpha1(from 3.9, originally from 1.5), but the SimplePie library is blocking the update process.

Actual result

Extensions Pre-Update Check

Update Information Unavailable
Extension Name Extension Type Update Compatible Version Currently Compatible Version Installed Version
SimplePie Library No Compatibility Information No Compatibility Information 1.2

Data from sql

INSERT INTO `jos37_extensions` (`extension_id`, `package_id`, `name`, `type`, `element`, `folder`, `client_id`, `enabled`, `access`, `protected`, `manifest_cache`, `params`, `custom_data`, `system_data`, `checked_out`, `checked_out_time`, `ordering`, `state`) VALUES
(101, 0, 'SimplePie', 'library', 'simplepie', '', 0, 1, 1, 1, '{\"name\":\"SimplePie\",\"type\":\"library\",\"creationDate\":\"2004\",\"author\":\"SimplePie\",\"copyright\":\"Copyright (c) 2004-2009, Ryan Parman and Geoffrey Sneddon\",\"authorEmail\":\"\",\"authorUrl\":\"http:\\/\\/\\/\",\"version\":\"1.2\",\"description\":\"LIB_SIMPLEPIE_XML_DESCRIPTION\",\"group\":\"\",\"filename\":\"simplepie\"}', '', '', '', 0, '0000-00-00 00:00:00', 0, 0);

System information (as much as possible)

  • Joomla! 3.10.0-alpha1
  • Apache/2.4.39 (Win64) OpenSSL/1.0.2s PHP/7.4.9
  • 10.3.15-MariaDB - binary distribution, cp1252 West European (latin1)

Additional comments

[Info] Finally I choose update by web-upload, but this don't finish correctly (database update) I thought Joomla 4 was a problem, so I installed it via file-upload...

During update to 3.10 on stage /administrator/index.php?option=com_joomlaupdate&view=update&layout=finaliseconfirm i can't finalize upgrade because extension SimplePie was listed in section Extensions Pre-Update Check Update Information Unavailable

I start update from v 3.6.4.

I have this extension marked as protected on my panel (uninstall option is disabled). This could be some relic from Joomla 1.5 migration.

Finalise confirm should just ask you for your SU Login Informationen

Seems your upgrade failed to apply this sql changes that would have dropped the entry from the database:

Okay, looks like version 3.10 is doing some testing that version 4 doesn't.

OT: @zero-24 you could point me to a code that is responsible for these tests. Thanks in advance.

What kind of tests you are looking for?

@zero-24 About Extensions Pre-Update Check.

Several of my extensions also fail this test. And I wanted to see what needs to be improved in them. I've corrected everything joomla-namespace-checker showed, but it still failed the test.

Can you show me the results of the pre upgrade checker? The only checks we do there is with the updater and whether you mark your updates as compatible with 4.x or not. We do not do any code checks on the extensions.

Unfortunately, I did not keep those data.

Thank you for your help, I will check how to correct it in the manifest.

Take a look here:

This is the tag we check in the upgrade checker:

Once we finde one for 4.x we show the result in the checker. Feel free to reach out to me when you need more help on that.
