Cannot auto upgrade to version 3.8.1 (1 post)

    I have been having problems for some time auto upgrading my version of WordPress. I am currently on 3.7 and have finally decided that I need to tackle this issue.

    I am currently hosted on 1and1 and installed WordPress using their click and build function.

    When I install, I get the following error message:

    Downloading update from https://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.8.1-new-bundled.zip…

    Unpacking the update…

    Verifying the unpacked files…

    Preparing to install the latest version…

    Enabling Maintenance mode…

    Copying the required files…

    Disabling Maintenance mode…

    Could not create directory.: wp-admin/css/colors

    Installation Failed

    I have some knowledge of using my FTP account but I would like to avoid manually updating if at all possible as this is not something I am confident doing now that the site is up and established.

    If anyone can point me in the right direction I would be very grateful.
