You can try send them something like an object a notecard even 1$L .  Sometimes this is enought to get them unstuck. Good Luck I hope this helps them out.

"Some" are wrong.

and one was told he had to wait till the next update, there is a bug, and they wont sign him out.

Told by whom? Unlikely, to say the least.

Easy way to fix is to have a friend logon and sent an IM or notecard to the sim owner asking them to restart the sim.

Or, create an ALT to logon and do the same.

Send your friends an im, always works for me when my alt is stuck in-world and can't log in.

If your friends are stuck in mainland sims, you'll need to contact LL Support ( Submit a ticket ) requesting a reboot of the region. If it's a private region ( Not a part of the mainland ), then you'll need to contact the sim owner instead, requesting a reboot of the region. By the way, tomorrow morning all of the regions will be restarted for software updates. So it might be best just to wait until then, though it's really up to your friends and whether or not they can wait.

PS: This issue is known as "Ghosted avatars". The only surefire way to fix the issue is to have the sim the ghosted avatar in rebooted.
