I get the following messages when I attempt to update to 3.8.1:
An automated WordPress update has failed to complete - please attempt the update again now.
and this is the message I get when I attempt to update any plugin - not just the contact form:
The update process is starting. This process may take a while on some hosts, so please be patient.
Enabling Maintenance mode…
Updating Plugin Contact Form 7 (1/1)
Downloading update from https://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/contact-form-7.3.7.zip…
Unpacking the update…
An error occurred while updating Contact Form 7: Could not create directory.
I considered the fact that I might not have enough space. I deleted quite a few files. Is it possible that I just need to give it some time?
While I am somewhat tech savey, I know that there are loads of things that I do not know. Any help is greatly appreciated!
