If you have a WordPress multisite (aka network) setup:

Please note that the WPSSO Core plugin and the WPSSO Update Manager add-on must be active on the default WordPress blog to get Premium version updates. This is a requirement of WordPress, not the WPSSO Core plugin. WordPress uses the default blog (ie. BLOG_ID_CURRENT_SITE) to manage updates in the network admin interface, which means the default blog must be licensed to install Premium updates. You can find additional information on managing multisite licensing here.
