    I also could use http://www.mysite.com/wp-admin/ to login instead of http://www.mysite.com/wp-admin. Mine is fresh installation. Renaming plugins folder doesn't help. This only happen across multiple PCs using Firefox browser. IE & Chrome is fine. Tried clearing cookies but don't think is cause by that either cause only happen on Firefox in multiple PCs. Any idea why?

    Just wanted to add that this trick worked for me too:

    just to rename the plugins folder in wp-content (I rename mine to plugins_). It kills the plugins, which enables you to log in and upgrade. Then rename it back again to plugins.

    I did not do a recent upgrade... it just locked me for no reason at all one day! I didn't have to upgrade to fix problem either. Just renamed folder, then logged in, then renamed folder back and all is well.

    Same thing happened to me, place a dot (.) before the filename to hide the plugin temporarily and upgrade everything once logged in..
