Support » Fixing WordPress » plug-in updates have stopped working

  • I have three WP sites (each with its own domain/hosting) running on the same hosting service. Recently, one of my sites has been having problems with automatic updates of plug-ins and WP.

    When I try to update a plug-in using the automatic feature, I get this:

    “An error occurred while updating [name of plug-in]. Could not remove the old plug-in.”

    This is not occurring on my other two sites.

    I am able to update by deactivating and erasing the old version of a plug-in and then reinstalling.

    I was able to update WP to the current version manually.

    Any ideas what might be going on?
