I have been developing my WordPress site on a WAMPServer on my laptop for a few months, with only a few problems. In the last few days several (but not all) plugin updates have failed - Specifically IThemes Security, MailPoet Newsletters, TablePress. I can reinstall OK, and their settings are still there.
With the first two I thought it might be something to do with their having changed name, but not TablePress. At the same time some other plugins (MapPress, Google XML Sitemaps) have updated OK.
It is possibly not WordPress, but where do I start to look? I am experienced in application development, but not in the more technical details. I cannot see any answers so far that seem to apply to a situation where some updates are OK and others are not.
I have plenty of space on the disk, and no storage limits that I know of. I presume that permissions are not the problem as it all used to work OK, and I do not know that I have changed anything. I don't see how it can be Windows path lengths as the folder names you can see below are short.
Apache is 2.4.4, PHP 5.4.12, MYSQL 5.6.12, WordPress 3.9.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
The result of the latest update is:
