    Recently I'm getting many of the same errors when attempting to upgrade plugins (not the 'Image Widget' specifically).

    The error reads:
    An error occured while updating nrelate Related Content: Download failed. Not Found.

    This has been happening to many plugins. Sometimes if I retry to updgrade it takes on the 3rd or 4th try, sometimes not.

    Any ideas?

    Multi-site 3.1

    Now I'm not only getting this "Download failed. Not Found" error when upgrading plugins, but when trying to install new plugins. This is really hindering my production since I can't upgrade or install plugins due to this problem.

    I have one hunch I want to follow up on...maybe it is related to the zip file name having "zipname. or some crazy thing like that for file versioning.

    Here's an example:

    Downloading update from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/add-to-any.…
    Download failed. Not Found

    Can anyone confirm this with some testing by downloading and renaming the zip file before upgrading?

    I.E. download plugin, rename zip file, de-activate existing plugin, delete existing plugin, upload new/upgraded plugin zip file.

    Of course this would be a pain if we had to do this for every plugin upgrade. But if we could identify that this is the problem we can submit a bug report to WP team.

    I think that is the issue...the naming of the zip file.

    I tried to upgrade "Article Directory" plugin to version 1.2, it gave me the "Download failed. Not found" error.

    I went to the WP plugin repository and downloaded the zip file, renamed it from "article-directory.1.2.zip" to "article-directory.zip" and it installed just fine.

    So to get around this problem:

    • delete existing plugin that requires upgrade
    • download plugin from WP plugin repository or plugin homepage
    • rename zip file to remove version numbers at end of file name
    • upload new/upgraded plugin zip file

    Now I need to figure out how to submit a bug report on this issue.

    It's definitely a known problem with the directory and I think they're working on it:

    Cool, I hope this solves it. I guess according to the WP bug tracker we'll know if that was it in just over 24hrs or so.
