Once again with WPMU DEV, the devil is in the detail.
My version of ‘Directory’ plugin is out of date:
There is a new version of Directory available on WPMU DEV. View version 188.8.131.52 details or Install WPMU DEV Dashboard to update.
For reasons detailed here, I cancelled my WPMU DEV some time ago, so can I update? = No.
Even though I was led to believe I could after cancelling my membership, it appears you can use a plugin but not update it.

Try searching Google as some WPMU DEV plugins have been rebranded by as their own.
I have not been able to find a replacement for the ‘Directory’ plugin, so we are using it as is, out of date.
This also happened with another plugin from WPMU DEV, except this plugin is a rebrand. I found it here. Uninstalled WPMU DEV, deleted WPMU DEV , reinstalled the new one, and everything worked as before except now it’s updateable.
