    I have attempted several times to update the Akismet plugin from 3.2 to 3.3 and it continually fails.

    Here is the transcript of the install attempt:

    Updating Plugin Akismet (1/1)
    Downloading update from https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/akismet.3.3.zip…
    Unpacking the update…
    Installing the latest version…
    Removing the old version of the plugin…
    Plugin update failed.
    An error occurred while updating Akismet: The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions. .htaccess.bak

    I have contacted my hosting service and we can’t find anything wrong with file permissions. What do I need to do to get the update to go through?

  • Yes I am having the exact same problem.

    “The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions. .htaccess.bak

    Plugin update failed.”

    I’m having the same issue across a few WP installations that I manage.

    The message I get doesn’t include the .htaccess.bak though.

    Update Failed: The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions.

    I guess I’ll have to manually update.

    Hi, i have the same issue since last few days. I just view the plugin directory manually, i found a “.htaccess” file in plugin directory, i do not know how it come here, but when i delete this “.htaccess”, the update done in a flash.
