Can't update Better WP Security (3 posts)

    When I try to update the Better WP Security plugin via the WP admin, it gives me these error messages. I assume that perhaps the plugin has made the directory that it is trying to download to un-writeable, but I really don't know how to proceed.

    These are the error messages>

    Downloading update from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/better-wp-security.3.4.10.zip…

    Warning: touch() [function.touch]: Unable to create file /storage/content/08/153508/programmingforiphone.com/public_html/wp-content/uploads/better-wp-security.tmp because No such file or directory in /storage/content/08/153508/programmingforiphone.com/public_html/wp-admin/includes/file.php on line 179

    Warning: unlink(/storage/content/08/153508/programmingforiphone.com/public_html/wp-content/uploads/better-wp-security.tmp) [function.unlink]: No such file or directory in /storage/content/08/153508/programmingforiphone.com/public_html/wp-admin/includes/file.php on line 493

    An error occurred while updating Better WP Security: Download failed. Destination directory for file streaming does not exist or is not writable..

    Thanks for your help.
