HELP! Frontend User Profile Edit Won’t Update Email

I’ve read forum after forum and I feel like my code is perfect. But it still won’t update the user email.

/* Get user info. */
global $current_user, $wp_roles;
//get_currentuserinfo(); //deprecated since 3.1

/* Load the registration file. */
//require_once( ABSPATH . WPINC . ‘/registration.php’ ); //deprecated since 3.1
$error = array();
/* If profile was saved, update profile. */
if ( ‘POST’ == $_SERVER[‘REQUEST_METHOD’] && !empty( $_POST[‘action’] ) && $_POST[‘action’] == ‘update-user’ ) {

/* Update user password. */
if ( !empty($_POST[‘pass1’] ) && !empty( $_POST[‘pass2’] ) ) {
if ( $_POST[‘pass1’] == $_POST[‘pass2’] )
wp_update_user( array( ‘ID’ => $current_user->ID, ‘user_pass’ => esc_attr( $_POST[‘pass1’] ) ) );
else
$error[] = __(‘The passwords you entered do not match. Your password was not updated.’, ‘profile’);
}

/* Update user information. */
if ( !empty( $_POST[‘url’] ) )
wp_update_user( array( ‘ID’ => $current_user->ID, ‘user_url’ => esc_url( $_POST[‘url’] ) ) );
if ( !empty( $_POST[’email’] ) ){
if (!is_email(esc_attr( $_POST[’email’] )))
$error[] = __(‘The Email you entered is not valid. please try again.’, ‘profile’);
elseif(email_exists(esc_attr( $_POST[’email’] )) != $current_user->id )
$error[] = __(‘This email is already used by another user. try a different one.’, ‘profile’);
else{
wp_update_user( array (‘ID’ => $current_user->ID, ‘user_email’ => esc_attr( $_POST[’email’] )));
}
}

if ( !empty( $_POST[‘first-name’] ) )
update_user_meta( $current_user->ID, ‘first_name’, esc_attr( $_POST[‘first-name’] ) );
if ( !empty( $_POST[‘last-name’] ) )
update_user_meta($current_user->ID, ‘last_name’, esc_attr( $_POST[‘last-name’] ) );
if ( !empty( $_POST[‘description’] ) )
update_user_meta( $current_user->ID, ‘description’, esc_attr( $_POST[‘description’] ) );

/* Redirect so the page will show updated info.*/
/*I am not Author of this Code- i dont know why but it worked for me after changing below line to if ( count($error) == 0 ){ */
if ( count($error) == 0 ) {
//action hook for plugins and extra fields saving
do_action(‘edit_user_profile_update’, $current_user->ID);
wp_redirect( get_permalink() );
exit;
}
}
