WordPress 3.6.1 update error

asked Sep 17, 2013 in Website Builder by SunFun (3,000 points)
I am running WordPress 3.6 and I saw that there is an update available (3.6.1) and I tried to update by clicking on the update link from my dashboard. But updating didn’t work and I got the fatal error: Call to undefined function wp_validate_redirect() in /home/fleursfl/public_html/wp-includes/functions.php
Any advice is appreciated
Thanks and regards

Deactivate all your plugins and then try switching to the Twenty Thirteen theme and try once again. Before you try to update again make sure you take a backup of your website.

You can use FTP or cPanel and rename your plugins folder and the folders for all your themes except for the twenty thirteen theme and then login and try updating again.
