Elegant Theme error w/ Event Espresso

I haven’t had many issues with updating Event Espresso on my website until this last one. I have the correct EE license key entered, my API for Elegant is current as well as my user name. I’m not sure why EE will not update on my WordPress. If you could help with this issue I would greatly appreciate it. This is the error I keep getting:

The update process is starting. This process may take a while on some hosts, so please be patient.

Hi Brian,

Which version of EE are you using?

Which theme are you using? Can you send me a copy so I can install it on a test site and investigate?

If so you can use support[at] to send the theme over (you may need to host the file on something like dropbox and send the link depending on the filesize)

It looks like elegant themes is hooking into the update request from EE and causing problems.

One option you have is to update EE manually on your site, we have some instructions for doing this here:
