How to troubleshoot auto upgrade problems (8 posts)

    On one of my sites I tried to upgrade from 3.0.1 to 3.0.2 but it fails.

    The output is:
    Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.0.3.zip…
    Unpacking the update…
    Verifying the unpacked files…
    Installing the latest version…
    Could not copy file.: /wp-admin/css/theme-editor.dev.css
    Installation Failed

    I can see where the zip file is unpacked to. I doubt that the issue is files being writeable as theme-editor.dev.css is not the first file in the zip file.

    How do I go about getting more information about the reason for the failure?

    daymobrew,

    Did you try to upgrade to WP 3.0.2 or 3.0.3?

    I did the 3.0.3 automatic upgrade (from 3.0.2) a few minutes ago, and it worked perfectly.

    to my knowledge
    wp-admin does not have a css folder

    @Root: It does have a css folder:
    http://core.svn.wordpress.org/tags/3.0.3/wp-admin/css/theme-editor.dev.css

    @DaisyMariposa: I got the same error trying 3.0.2 to 3.0.3.

    I realise that many/most people will not have problems. I am looking for debugging suggestions.
    The "Could not copy file" error is from copy_dir() function in wp-admin/includes/file.php.
