I am trying to migrate a Drupal site to a new server. Most things appear to be working on the new server but the available updates report is missing. Here are the details:
I turned off clean URLs on the old server, downloaded a backup of the database via cPanel, and restored it on the new server and then downloaded all the files (everything in public_html that does not start with a _) and restored these files to the new server. I checked and did not see anything in the settings.php file that would need to be changed. Most things appear to be working as they should but the available updates report is missing. If I try running the report by manually entering the URL [my domain]?q=admin/reports/status it just takes me back to the reports screen, where the status report is listed but the available updates report is missing. I should note as well that when I run the status report it does not list the Drupal core update status and does not report on the Module and theme update status. Both of these show up when I run the available updates report on the old server. I have tried migrating the site twice now with the same results. Any suggestions would be most appreciated since I have been beating my head against this problem for almost 4 hours now. Thanks!
