Support » Fixing WordPress » Can't install or update plugins

  • Hi,
    Since I updated my wordpress to 3.4.2 i’m getting this error when trying to install or update a plugin, since i’m not using an english version i’ll try to translate it:”Packet could not be installed. Plugin does not have files.”
    I keep getting this error for every plugin and i’m installing all plugins manually because of it.

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    – switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    – re-uploading all files & folders – except the wp-content folder – from a fresh download of WordPress. Make sure that you delete the old copies of files & folder before uploading the new ones.

    Tks, last option solved my problem.
