I am currently running Magento version 188.8.131.52. States are not available in the Default State dropdown in admin area. I have only option to choose asterisk (*) with no States listed. I have selected United State as Origin country. Under Shipping Settings in Origin section Region/State field is replaced with text area where it should have a dropdown with options to select States. I have attached a Screenshot of the same. I need to fix this as soon as possible. Any help will be valued and highly appreciated.
