After upgrading to 2.1.2, attempting to install or upgrade (in this case Spamblock (Bayes)) a plugin yielded the error
The URL /additional_plugins/serendipity_event_spamblock_bayes/img/spamblock_bayes.load.gif?revision=1.9999 (IP ) could not be opened. Maybe the Serendipity or Server is down - we are sorry, you need to try again later.

Note that server and root path are missing from the URL. I do have set in the Spartacus plugin as source for both, File/Mirror location (XML metadata) and File/Mirror location (files). After going to the Spartacus setup and intuitively ;-) clicking Save these informational messages were displayed:
Deleting file package_template.xml...
Deleting file package_sidebar_en.xml...
Deleting file package_event_en.xml...

And subsequently the plugin upgrade worked.

So it seems that the upgrade from 2.1.1 to 2.1.2 should had cleared those cache files. Probably manually removing templates_c/package_* should work as well.

Confirmed. I see this behavour in three of my blogs, too. You have to go to spartacus settings and save once, even without doing any changes. After that, plugin upgrade is working again.

Did the same. But now I see (when I try to update the plugins) a blank page.

Delete the cache in "templates_c" didn't help.

Update I also deleted the s9y cookie on my Browser. Nothing: blank screen again when updating.
