    I'm getting the following error when trying to upgrade from 3.4.2 via ftp.

    Update WordPress

    Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.5-new-bundled.zip…

    Unpacking the update…

    Verifying the unpacked files…

    Warning: require_once(/var/www/wordpress/wp-content/upgrade/version-current.php) [function.require-once]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /var/www/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/update-core.php on line 640

    Fatal error: require_once() [function.require]: Failed opening required '/var/www/wordpress/wp-content/upgrade/version-current.php' (include_path='.:/usr/share/php:/usr/share/pear') in /var/www/wordpress/wp-admin/includes/update-core.php on line 640

    This is not the first time i've tried to upgrade - this blog has been upgraded many, many times.

    The suggestion is a file permissions issue, but even setting (/var/www/wordpress/wp-content/upgrade/version-current.php) as 777 doesn't help...

    I have disabled all plugins, no change.

    ok - the file permissions on the folder


    Were completed screwed up for some reason. I completed removed the upgrade folder and then upgraded without error.

    Deleting the upgrade folder is safe to do so.
