[resolved] Getting Error Message When Installing Plugins - Help Please! (5 posts)

    Hello there,

    I just installed WP version 3.0.5, but when I tried to update Akismet and NextGen Gallery plugins, I get the following message:

    Upgrade Plugin

    Downloading update from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/nextgen-gallery.zip…

    Unpacking the update…

    Incompatible Archive. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature

    Actions: Return to Plugins page

    I received the exact same message when I tried to update both plugins. Can someone please tell me how I can get this resolved?

    Thanks so much in advance,
    Henry

    If you're comfortable with FTP, doing a manual update of the plug-ins is a simple workaround.

    Thanks zoonini,

    I was able to increase the mi disk quota with my server via WHM and fixed the issue - I appreciate your prompt response!

    Take care,
    Henry

  4. Glad you found a solution. Would you please mark this issue as "resolved"? Thanks.
