    Does WordPress Update work successfully?

    What version of PHP do you have? There are (older) versions of PHP that have bugs with zip/unzip, hang with no error messages -- and make WordPress Update fail, make BackWPup compression fail, anything using zip/gzip. http://lcblog.lernerconsult.com/2013-php-unzip-bug-makes-wordpress-updates-hang/ has PHP code that demonstrates the bug isn't in WordPress.

    Obviously a temporary workaround is disable BackWPUp compression, if this is the problem.
