Was updating several plug-ins after a good holiday break and got the following error "Update failed: Temporarily Unavailable body { background-image: url('https://www.inmotionhosting.com/_img/body_bg.gif'); background-repeat: repeat-x; font-family: Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif; font-weight: 700; } img { border-width:0px; } h1 { font-family: "Roboto"; font-weight: 900; font-size: 48px; text-shadow: 1px 1px rgba(32, 32, 32, 0.2); } h2 { font-family: "Roboto"; font-weight: 400; font-size: 24px; } h4 { font-family: "Roboto"; font-weight: 900; font-size: 24px; color: rgba(40, 40, 40, 0.7); } #reason { width: 50%; margin-top: -20px; font-family: "Roboto"; font-weight: 300; font-size: 12px; color: rgba(40, 40, 40, 0.7); } #bottext { width: 50%; margin-top: 100px; font-family: "Roboto"; font-weight: 300; font-size: 14px; color: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.9); } .header { background-image: url('https://www.inmotionhosting.com/_img/head_logo.gif'); } Temporarily Unavailable We apologize for the inconvenience, but this page is currently unavailable.

There are a few common causes of this issue. Based on my research, this often relates to a disk space issue. Your site may be up and running, but the update causes you to hit the limit of available disk space and WordPress reads this as unavailable. 

See if you can clear up some server disk space (emails, unused test sites, etc.) and try again - that should help. 


(as usual, be sure you have secured backups of everything before doing so - but make sure those backups aren't stored on the server, because those big files could easily be what is causing the issue in the first place). 

Further, try updating the plugins individually when you do. That should help as well. Hope that helps!
