Thanks for your reply. You are now describing the problem completely differently than before. First it was that you couldn't receive any files at all, now the problem is that you cannot receive .epub files.
This is the default setting, so you simply need to change it. You ended up at the default state either by something you did or didn't do while installing the newer version of mIRC, or else something that occasionally happens with mIRC is that mirc.ini gets trashed so it recreates mirc.ini from scratch containing the default settings.
In options/dcc/ignore the settings are either to have a list of *.filetypes which are the only ones accepted, or a different list of *.filetypes which are the only ones rejected, or a 3rd setting that disables the ignore settings. You can also check by seeing if this the answer is $true to pasting this in any editbox:
//echo -a $dccignore(file.epub)
My guess is that you have the setting which only accepts a list of filetypes, and these are not in the list.
Assuming the settings shows to be "accept only", the fix is to simply type *.epub in the input box then click 'add' then 'ok'.
If the setting is "ignore only" and *.epub is on the list, simply find the offending file from the ignore list then click "delete"
If this isn't the problem, you could have visited the channel as I mentioned earlier and saved yourself the trouble of these past few days
