when updating Panels+CTools (both were enabled before - of course I updated them at the same time), I got a WSOD at fist.
After I could overcome that by removing them from the modules folder and trying to re-install them / update them, I got:
The following queries were executed
* Failed: Panels cannot be updated because CTools 1.7 (API v1.7.2) is required. Please update CTools and then try update.php again.
I double-checked that I got the last version for BOTH and updated them at the same time.
What's even more strange - both panels and Ctools are now inactive in the modules administration and can't be activated.
I run cron and tried to update, plus I tried this with both the latest stable and dev versions. No success.
Thanks for any help.
