    Hi Seyi,
    trying to update Awocoupon 3.5.8.0 to 3.5.8.2. Receive messages "Failed to download package. Download it and install manually from https://awodev.com/api/license/v1/joomdownload."
    Clicking this link leads to page 404.
    How to install update?

    I get this all of the time. Why doesn't the update process work within Joomla! without having to go retrieve the file manually. The update site is wrong, so the J! update will never work. https://awodev.com/api/license/v1/joomdownload

    Edit: However, the update within the AWOCoupon component works fine. So no need to download if you have an active subscription :)  But the JED should be changed to "does not use Joomla! updater" to be safe.

    Go to joomla admin > extensions > manage > update sites.  Delete any AwoCoupon entry(s) and rebuild.  Your AwoCoupon link should be pointing to

    Yep, I've done that before. It shows https://awodev.com/assets/productxml/awocoupon-jm.xml and https://awodev.com/assets/productxml/aworewards-jm.xml for coupon/rewards. J! does tell me that there is an update...but then within the update process it reports an error because the xml generated from the above links go to: https://awodev.com/api/license/v1/joomdownload which is a 404 error on the website.

    Hello,

    That is the default return for that page if it does not return a file, it shows a 404.  The url is valid.

    So there is one more step.  You have loaded the xml file, you need to now load the subscription data into it.  To do this, go to awocoupon, delete your subscription and re-add it.  This will load the subscription data into the update sites url. 

    Then go to extension > manage > update and clear cache before running the update again.
