 > Hi @ceceet! Welcome to Trac and thanks for opening this ticket.
 > Some additional info:
 > - The UpdraftCentral plugin calls `wp_get_current_user()` in a
 `shutdown` callback.
 > - See [https://plugins.trac.wordpress.org/browser/updraftcentral/trunk
 /site-management.php#L484 here for the call] and
 management.php#L136here for the hook].
 > - This has existed within the plugin for quite a long time.

 > I created a small plugin to test calling `wp_get_current_user()` in a
 `shutdown` callback:
 > {{{#!php

 > add_action( 'shutdown', 'try_wp_get_current_user' );

 > There was no Fatal Error on PHP 7.4 or PHP 8.0.

 > @ceceet if you have any additional information from the plugin
 developers about how they determined that this is an issue within
 WordPress Core rather than the plugin, that would be a big help in
 determining how best to resolve this issue.

 Thanks for the detailed response! I submitted a support ticket to updraft
 and they just decided it was a problem the pluggable.php and not anything
 on their end. I kinda think they're full of it but thought I'd post here
 first. They didn't log into the site and try to change anything so I don't
 know how they really came to that decision.
