Support » Fixing WordPress » error message when installing 3.8

  • 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

    Any ideas how to fix this?

    – Check the error logs on your server for a more specific error message. If you need help locating them, ask your hosting provider to help you with that.

    I’m having the same problem with the file, with the automatic update saying update-core.php does not exist.

    There are no error logs for this.
