    Downloading update from https://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.8.1-no-content.zip…

    Unpacking the update…

    Warning: copy(/wp-admin/includes/update-core.php) [function.copy]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-direct.php on line 217

    The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions.: wp-admin/includes/update-core.php

    Installation Failed

    I am getting dirs wit apache:apache user/group and this can only come from the unpacked file (we use different user/group).
    Something is not right with this update.

    It's worked just fine for me on multiple sites (about 9 so far). Seems you have a permissions issue on your site.

    Have used this set-up for years and nothing has changed.
    Never had this problem before.
