You can definitely change your email address. When you log-in to your oDesk account, click on “gear” icon (aka settings) at the top right of your screen.
Click on Contact Info and then Edit under Account, there you may be able to change your email id.
Edit: Make sure new email address that you provide is not associated with any other oDesk account.
Why is it that every time I try to edit and update my email address, the confirmation -- which serves no link for confirmation, itself -- is always sent to my previous email (the one I want changed)?
My new one gets not a notification.
Hoping for your best answer.
You should have received an email with a confirmation link on the email address your tried to add. Please check if the email address is entered correctly, check your spam folder and use the resend button in your Upwork account Settings if you can't find the confirmation email. Also, check if you might have set the forwarding option on the second email address.
If you're still having trouble confirming the new email address, please contact Customer Support.
The email on the screenshot you shared is a notification that's sent to the old address about email being changed. Please, log into the new email and click the confirmation link to verify your new email address.
