    Upgraded from WordPress 4.3.1 to 4.4 yesterday, all seemed to go well.

    When attempting to access theme settings today (Tempera) the tempera theme settings page was blank. Thought maybe I just need to re-install it, de-activated theme, went to try an un-install it and it wouldn’t clear from my themes area in the wordpress dashboard, manually deleted it using ftp and when I tried to re-install it I received the following:

    Downloading install package from https://downloads.wordpress.org/theme/tempera.1.3.3.zip…

    Unpacking the package…

    Installing the theme…

    Could not copy file. /data/www/mmfa/wp-content/themes/tempera/404.php

    Theme install failed.

    This was working fine under WordPress 4.3.1; and none of my permissions have been modified. Looked up /var/log/mmfa/error.log and I see the following every time WordPress is trying to use ftp:

    PHP Warning: Illegal string offset ‘name’ in /data/www/mmfa/wp-admin/includes/class-ftp.php on line 730, referer: http://www.mmfa.lan/wp-admin/update.php?action=install-theme&theme=tempera&_wpnonce=aff1fc7c5c

    OS is FreeBSD 10.2-RELEASE; running Apache24, MySQL 5.5, PHP 5.6.

    Any ideas? Thanks.
