    Try changing the permissions on the wp-content directory to 766. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777. Once your uploads are working, change the permissions on wp-content back to 755 again and check that everything still works OK.

    dear esmi,

    I have follow your instruction to change the permission on the wp-content directory and it's still the same, I can't update my wordpress or my plugins.

    It could possibly be a folder ownership problem. Try asking your hosts about it and give them a copy of those error messages.
