    Hi Guys,
    I have a website which is based off an "word press" template. The issue i'm having is that it's not allowing me to update the template to the current version of word press. This is the error I keep getting when I try and update.

    Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.5.1-new-bundled.zip…
    Unpacking the update…
    Could not copy files.
    Installation Failed

    Please respond back if you could provide any assistance regarding this query.

    Try:
    - switching to the default theme by renaming your current theme's folder inside wp-content/themes and adding "-old" to the end of the folder name using FTP or whatever file management application your host provides.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or phpMyAdmin.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    - running the upgrade manually via wp-admin/upgrade.php
