    So I tried overwriting the http file given by Ryan, it worked and then after some time it didn't.

    So what I did, I deleted all inactive plugins I have. And guess what? Its working now.

    I upgraded all the LesterChan plugins automatically in WP 2.8 and it went on like a breeze!

    It's still not working for me *crying*
    I have even tested with 2.8.1 beta now.

    Auto-updates work fine on my local machine, but not on the live server. However, I have no idea which of the numerous server option and settings might be the reason. :/

    Up grading the htpp.php fixed my problem with the "Invalid archive structure" problem. Thanks ryan

    I have solved the problem for me:

    In wp-config.php, I had added the following line:
    define('WP_TEMP_DIR', ABSPATH . 'wp-content/upgrade');
    because without that line, my auto-update wouldn't work in WordPress 2.7.

    Now in WordPress 2.8, it seems that the auto-update won't work with that line. ;) So I removed it and everything's working again!

    Updating http.php fixed the problem.

    Thanks,

    Updating the http.php didn't help for me. (I wasn't getting an error, but all the automatic updates would just stop after the message that it was downloading, or maybe that it was unpacking the update.) I deactivated all my plugins one-by-one, and it seems that the Gurken Subscribe to Comments plugin may have been causing the hang-up, because all the automatic updates worked after I deactivated it. Who knows, maybe it was just a fluke ...

    Updating the http.php didn't help for me either. Anybody know a fix for this?

    So is this a problem that has no solution? I've seen many posts in the forums about the auto update not working. I'd like to get wordpress working properly again. Someone please lend a helping hand.

    After Updateing PHP to most current version 5.2.11 make me running into this problem as well. Using the offered http.php from this Thread didn't solve this error either. So back to manually updateing PlugIns like we did in the past.

    Self hostest WP 2.8.4 (en), Debian 4 and PHP 5.2.11

    I have used Core Control for a while and I can update a plugin if I deactivates Core Control an reactivates it. Then I have to update all the plugins at once (open them in new tabs/windows) or deactivate and then reactivate the Core Control and then update one plugin at the time and then deactivate and reactivate again to update another plugin...

    This works for me, not a good solution, but it works.

    If I deactivate the Core Control I cannot update any plugins because wordpress don't search for any updates and thinks that all the plugins are up to date. Thats why I have to activate the plugin after deactivating it...

    @LaStrada
    Thanks to you, I was able to upgrade my plugin by
    1. activate core control
    2. open new tab for plugin ugprade
    3. deactive core control
    4. ftp to start upgrade plugin
    and repeat step 1 for whatever plugins.

    After upgrading the plugins, surprising I am able to upgrade from wp 2.8.3 to 2.8.5
    Previously there is PCLZIP problem, and also another problem "cannot move the file" in theme folder problem.

    Note that I have replaced my 2.8.3 wp-includes/http.php from wp2.8.5 that i downloaded before I do the above step. Not sure it helps or not.

    Update: Problem is gone after Updateing/re-compiling most current PHP (Update) on my Server. I did not do anything than before. #strange

    I found the error was due to memory problems, in /wp-admin.includes/file.php I changed the memory limit from 256MB to 128MB and this fixed the prob; the server which my blog runs on only has 256MB of ram so that was probably the problem.
