    Hey, maybe the update server was down. Have you tried to upgrade again?

    Best,

    I tried to upgrade several times in last month. I tried just now.
    Unfortunately it doesn't work.

    I just noticed "Failed to write request to temporary file." in error message above, looks like your installation of WordPress doesn't have permission to create temporary files.

    I suggest you look at this page and this thread, they're suggesting several things you can try.

    Hope this helps.

    Best,
    Mateja

    I contacted my host and they told me I had some backup plugin which left 500 MB of temp files in my backup directory.
