WordPress Version 5 – Another update is currently in progress

Question

I know that a similar question has been asked before, but this is NOT a duplicate because this is specific to WordPress 5+ and the answers to the similar question have all been tried to no avail.

Issue:

My WordPress is Version 5.01 and there are some technical issues PHP error logs indicate the core WordPress needs to be reinstalled (bad syntax errors on core SQL queries with empty $vars) .

However; when presented with Re-installing WordPress on the admin area; it states that:

Another update is currently in progress

I have run through all of the answers in this question and they are invalid or not applicable (they have all been attempted to confirm this):

  • The .maintenance file has been manually disabled.
  • The <...>_options table directory does NOT contain the wordpress update .lock tag. Despite this being confirmed as appearing in the PHP code.
  • All plugins have been disabled.
  • The lock does not time out and resolve after 15 minutes.

Yet I am still unable to find either the cause of the notification or the notfication itself in the PHP code, to manually override it (reference here again) .

Request:

How do I over-ride the "Another update is currently in progress" in WordPress 5. This request is specific to WP5 as it appears the system may have changed since before 5.0,

Update

I am not looking [just] for how to work-around the problem; more an explanation as to how the text "Another update is currently in progress" is generated on WordPress 5

Thank you for any guidance on this.
