    Ok so i went to update the plugin called Akismet. I have done a fresh install and upon updating it asks me for my FTP info so i give it my ftp info that i use. And it says cant connect, in my mind its something wrong with my ftpd because joomla had the same problem how ever its the built in ftp that came with Ubuntu so shouldn't it be supported?

    Try adding your FTP details to your wp-config.php file.

    Thanks for the prompt response but after trying your suggestion, i had no luck.

    here is my ftp part of my wp-config.php

    /** My Editing FTP Stuff */
    define('FS_METHOD', 'ftpsockets');
    define('FTP_BASE', '/var/www/');
    define('FTP_CONTENT_DIR', '/var/www/wp-content/');
    define('FTP_PLUGIN_DIR ', '/var/www/wp-content/plugins/');
    define('FTP_USER', 'root');
    define('FTP_PASS', '********');
    define('FTP_HOST', 'localhost');
