Newly, the data on Special:LanguageStats are no longer updated

Please have a look.

    We can no longer force it with "&action=purge" either, it just does nothing. I believe someone managed to force a purge yesterday (I got the "refreshing stats" message when viewing the stats) and since then it neither refreshes nor allows a purge.

      I saw timeouts on our logs, so likely I should move that to the JobQueue.

      Anyway, we should hunt down why it's not updating as it should.

        Virtually, we can not see the messages that need to be translated. Does this mean that we must retire temporarily?

          Your message sounds impolite. I hope that was not your intention.

            I have cherry-picked by untested fix and purged all statistics. Give some time for them to repopulate. Let me know if you see further issues of stats not updating.

              I do not mean any abuse. I mean it's because we need to update stats automatically.Thanks for responding

                The problem returned quickly

                  Which problem? Can you give a specific example and/or steps to reproduce?

                    The stats have not been updating for a few days.

                      Please give concrete examples (groups, languages). I don't have time to start hunting. I did one test translation and the stats updated correctly.

                        If I go to LanguageStats for pt, I get:

                        2018-12-01 Special-LanguageStats 1.png

                        If I then click on MediaWiki, instead of 1 message to translate I get 3:

                        2018-12-01 Special-LanguageStats 2.png

                        In fact, the MediaWiki counter for pt has been at 1 for at least a week. Only going into MediaWiki did I realize that there have been messages waiting to be translated.

                        By the way, when I wrote the message above, the counter was 1 and only the last of the three messages was there waiting (so, I believe it is not just a counter of the outdated messages, the MediaWiki counter is not being updated at all, as far as I can tell).

                        If you try to do that for other languages (say, pt-br) you'll find similar differences.

                        Hope this helps...

                          That looks correct to me. There is one untranslated message and two outdated translatiosn (which are counted as translated), but shown in the "outdated" column as 1%.

                            If you expand MediaWiki you get this:

                              Today, it still shows a total of 1:

                              2018-12-01 Special-LanguageStats 4.png

                              But now there are 4 messages, 2 new, 2 outdated:

                              2018-12-01 Special-LanguageStats 5.png

                              Further, if we expand MediaWiki we still get 1 for MediaWiki, 3 for MediaWiki Core, and nothing else, so the message group of the new message, Wikimedia Project Names, is not represented nor reflected in the totals:

                              2018-12-01 Special-LanguageStats 6.png

                              The MediaWiki counter continues at 1, same as it has been for over a week now, doesn't increase with new/outdated messages nor decrease with translations/updates.
