Tubepress 5.1.8 is throwing a PHP Fatal error, please see blockquote below. I have tested this on 2 websites with completely different server setups.
Fatal error : Class tubepress_event_impl_tickertape_EventBase contains 2 abstract methods and must therefore be declared abstract or implement the remaining methods (tubepress_api_event_EventInterface::getDispatcher, tubepress_api_event_EventInterface::getName) in \wp-content\plugins\tubepress_pro_5_1_8\src\add-ons\event\classes\tubepress\event\impl\tickertape\EventBase.php on line 15
If the error happens during an update, it will completely lock users out of wp-admin until the plugin is manually disabled either via the database or deleting the plugin via FTP.
Activating a new install of the plugin will also throw the error, and not allow it to be activated.
For now we have rolled back to 4.2.1 with no errors.
