In WordPress 2.5, I was able to use the 'upgrade automatically' function in the Plugins area without issue.
Since the upgrade to WordPress 2.6, that function no longer works on either of my WordPress blogs. No matter what plugin I attempt to 'upgrade automatically', it stops at the step where it downloads the updated and never proceeds, nor does it produce an error message.
Downloading update from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wordpress-automatic-upgrade.1.2.1.zip
Has anyone else experienced this issue in WordPress 2.6? I've not been able to find where anyone has posted this particular issue in the forums yet.
