Yes - i have the same problem at this time.
But most of the applications are to complex for a simply debug.

The server installation is complete new (no upgrade) with wheezy from beginning of may.
I installed most of the applications new to the latest stable releases.
So wikimedia is V 1.20.4.
The migration of the previous version seems not make problems.
What can i do more than to install the actual version?

There is other software that has no newer versions.
E.g. http://www.phpmyedit.org/
Here i have the problem that the software is doing nearly nothing.
There is no error message in the apache2 logs and links and buttons are not working.
But this error is consistent.

What i cannot understand is why an update is empty depending of the content (always simple text)?

> If it didn't work at all then there would be many reports.

Yes - i wonder about this also .
And i thought that PHP is more downwards compatible.
Hopefully someone will answer with the same problem.

Up to now i can't find similar problem descriptions.
