  • This code causes that message;

    if ( ! current_user_can('install_plugins') )
    wp_die(__('You do not have sufficient permissions to install plugins on this blog.'));

    So you could try to create a new user and give that user the Adminstrator Role then login and see if you can install plugins.

    Note: If you have a Role Manager Plugin then you might want to see if the install_plugins capability exists for your current admin user.

    exact same error over here:

    After clicking the upgrade link at the plugin list i’ll get this error:

    You do not have sufficient permissions to install plugins on this blog.

    I’m logged in as the admin and got this problem after i upgraded to 2.7

    Same here

    solved it:

    installed this plugin:
    http://www.im-web-gefunden.de/wordpress-plugins/role-manager/

    and noticed that this capability where not present:

    Delete Plugins
    Edit Plugins
    Install Plugins
    Update Plugins

    I’ve created them and activated them for the administrator account

    after that everyting worked just fine!

    Cheers!

    Nothing changed here ;-((

    use the plugin
    “user – Capabilities”

    add “Delete Plugins”,”Update Plugins”
    and active them in “Roles”

    Nope! I have all roles activated but nothing changed…

    Where do I find the user – Capabilities plugin? I’ve searched the * Official WordPress Plugins Repository
    * WordPress Plugin Database at wp-plugins.net
    and cannot find it.

    Where do I find the user – Capabilities plugin?

    The plugin is not called “Capabilities”. Indeo was explaining how to use the “Role Manager” plugin (which is linked above by margjedonder)

    Once you install the “Role Manager” plugin then you click on “Users” on the left, then “Capabilities” and add “Delete Plugins” and “Update Plugins” and “Install Plugins” by typing each of those into the “New Capability Name:” box and clicking “Create Capability”

    Once you’ve done that click on “Roles” (under “Users” to the left) and check that your administrator user has all those roles enabled.
