How to Keep Your Site Up-to-Date with Upgrade Protection
Keeping your site secure is an important part of maintaining a stable website. DotNetNuke Corp. is diligent in fixing bugs and patching security holes. When a new version of DNN is released, you'll see a notification in the top admin menu bar upon logging in as host.

I Have Upgrade Protection. Why Does it Say Updates Are Available?
Having upgrade protection does not mean that your site will automatically be upgraded each time a newer version of DNN is released.

For these reasons, you need to contact support and request the standard upgrade.
