[resolved] WordPress SEO fails to update (4 posts)

    WordPress version: 3.4.2
    WordPress SEO version: 1.2.8.7

    I did this: Clicked update to WordPress SEO 1.3.4.1. via WordPress.
    I expected the plugin to: update.
    Instead it fails to install (message: Installation unsuccesful).

    A following check with an ftp program reveals that the WordPress SEO folder is now empty except but for a CSS folder icon (also empty). All SEO work is gone.

    I tried disabling all plugins before updating but it still fails.

    What to do? Please? Really looking forward to resolve this.

    Is there any risk that this procedure will destroy SEO content that I already added?

    FTP update worked (thanks!) but still left a "Please Update" in WordPress. I then deactivated the plugin and updated via WP without problems. It's up and running - thanks!
