I'm a user with full administrative permissions in a Drupal 7.14 instance. I am able to access admin/reports/updates/update, tick the checkbox for each entry, etc. I am also able to (so far) execute any other site function since I have all permissions enabled.

When I click 'Download these updates' after ticking some update entries, I am taken to /batch?op=start&id=n where n equals a varying ID number. The problem is that the page at this stage says "Access Denied: You are not authorized to access this page." Thus, I'm unable to make any module updates.

This is an issue when executing any site function where the URL is /batch?. Thus, I cannot manually check for updates, etc.

When viewing admin/reports/access-denied, 'batch' lists (at this time) 17 as the count.

Can anyone shed some light on this issue?

8 versions behind the latest stable version. Have you checked all issues leading up to 7.22 which may have fixed your issue?

is the overlay module enabled?

The overlay module is indeed enabled.

I checked all bug reports, but there were none relevant to this issue.

and if the overlay.module is disabled does the issue continue?
