Follow the steps below:

  1. Deactivate Osmosis – (activate one of the WP themes like Fourteen)
  2. Delete Osmosis
  3. Upload and install the new version of Osmosis, then activate it.
  4. If you won’t get an info message prompting you to update one or both of the required plugins of Osmosis (Visual Composer and Greatives Visual Composer Extension) you’re ready.
