We have used enfold theme 4.4.1 as it was advised to use it as it was free. It functioned very well, up to PHP7.4
Our WordPress site should be updated from PHP7.4 to 8.1, as our website provider requires that. We tested and most probably the old version of 4.4.1 of enfold is causing a problem. Also, we tried to update, but WordPress states that it is the most recent version.
So, we are thinking of purchasing enfold 5.2. But we are not sure if this theme upgrade is compatible with the original 4.4.1. version we used.
Could you advise?

Enfold has never been free, so you are likely using pirated code. If you should decide to purchase a valid copy of the theme, then please follow these steps:
The update to 5.2 has to be done manually from the version you are running, please refer to my replies in this thread: https://kriesi.at/support/topic/enfold-4-5-theme-update-update-failed-download-failed-a-valid-url-was-not-pro/#post-1021541
You can either update manually via FTP: https://kriesi.at/documentation/enfold/how-to-install-enfold-theme/#theme-update, or use a plugin to upload the theme zip file: https://wordpress.org/plugins/update-theme-and-plugins-from-zip-file/
If that doesn’t work then please try to delete the whole theme folder, then replace it with the new version. Make sure that you have backups of the site before starting updating.
Also please read this after you have updated: https://kriesi.at/documentation/enfold/theme-registration/

We apologise for the inconvenience. It turns out that my wife had purchased enfold 4.4.1. We now have successfully update to version 5. Thank you for your answers.
