"No Update Required" Loop - Can't Access Dashboard

Received an email about 10 hours ago saying that my site had been upgraded automatically to 3.8.3. My site is still publicly accessible, but I can no longer access the dashboard, edit pages, etc. When I try to do so, I get this error message, which then dumps me back to the main page when I click Continue:

No Update Required
Your WordPress database is already up-to-date!

Not even sure where to start in fixing this. I only know enough to be dangerous…but I believe I am correct in saying that this is a WP self-install on a VPS and CloudFlare is activated.

Thanks in advance for your assistance!


This issue has been affecting a few of our customers recently. It appears to be an issue with caching and our devs are currently looking into it. Manually flushing the cache has been a work around, which we did for your site. If you have any further issues let me know!

Thanks Fabian!
