One of the most annoying error in WordPress is the ‘Scheduled Maintenance’ message a Webmaster gets after an automatic upgrade has completed.

This problem is mainly caused by a failed automatic upgrade or an interrupted update process.  So each time a visitor tries to visit your home page, he/she will get the following message:

Briefly unavailable for scheduled maintenance. Check back in a minute.

In fact, each time WordPress is automatically updating its core files, themes or plugins, the blog will be  marked as ‘under maintenance’.
To fix this problem :  remove .maintenance (hidden) file, located  in your blog root directory and the site will come back.

You may want to run the WordPress automatic upgrade again after resolving this problem.
