Unfortunately, it seems that in one of our recent security releases (SMF 1.1.9), the Upgrade package will prevent you from upgrading an SMF installation and throw up an error pertaining outdated files. We're aware of this (See: 0003464: 1.1.9 Upgrade Package | index.english.php version mismatch ) and working towards resolving the issue, pending when the upgrade package is fixed, please use one of the following workarounds.

Open ./Upgrade.php

Code: (Find) [Select]
if (empty($match[1]) || $match[1] != SMF_LANG_VERSION)
Code: (Replace) [Select]
if( 0 ) // if (empty($match[1]) || $match[1] != SMF_LANG_VERSION)
That will prevent the language check, alternatively, you can get past this issue by changing the URL from "step=0" to "step=1".

If, after attempting these solutions, you still have the problem, please create a new topic, do not post support questions in this topic.

This bug has been resolved and the upgrade packages were re-generated.
This shouldn't be an issue if you download the latest builds :).

Please note that a similar issue exists in 2.0 RC1-1 upgrade and update packages: http://www.simplemachines.org/community/index.php?topic=323221.0: index.english.php file has the version "2.0 RC1".
Perhaps it could be a sticky after all.
To-do lists are for deferral. The more things you write down the later they're done… until you have 100s of lists of things you don't do.
