CSS disappears while editing theme when plugin update pops up (2 posts)

    I had this error show up about two weeks ago, but after a few days it resolved itself. Unfortunately, it came back again yesterday in the early evening.

    I was trying to edit a font size in the css editor when a plugin update popped up, and immediately after I tried to save the CSS update the theme stopped working. The entire CSS content disappeared completely from the visual editor--all that shows up in the editor is a blank page right now.

    Last time this issue took about 3 to 4 days to fix itself. I do not really have the leisure of waiting several days for it to fix itself, though, as the WordPress blog (hosted at http://web.ics.purdue.edu/~slschnei/406/) is for a final project in a web 2.0 production class I am taking and the link is due to my professor by noon on May 7.

    In addition to the missing CSS, I am also unable to update the plugin or to download a new theme to replace the old one. I did disable all of the plugins at one point but that still did not help the problem at all.

    Last time this happened as well as now when I try to update the plugin I get the following message:

    Downloading update from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/featured-tag-widget.0.9.zip.
    Unpacking the update.
    Incompatible archive PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

    And when I try to redownload the old theme or download a different theme altogether I get this message:

    Downloading install package from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/download/elements-of-seo.1.2.zip.
    Unpacking the package.
    Incompatible archive PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

    Any ideas on why these errors keep happening, or how to get the issue resolved sooner without having to wait an indefinite amount of time for it to "fix itself"?

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Looks like the files that you are trying to download directly into your site are becoming corrupted. Try updating your plugins manually using FTP.
