When a WordPress application is being updated on rare occasions it leaves a .maintenance file in the home folder of the website which is causing the whole website to enter a maintenance mode. On the other hand by activating this mode WordPress protects your website from possible data loss during the update process.
The Solution: Please simply remove that file via your cPanel -> File Manager or by connecting to the FTP service for your account.
If you are experiencing issues finding this file please submit a support ticket or provide me with the domain you are using and I will gladly remove that file for you.
