trouble updating wordpress to 3.8.1 and plugins (1 post)

    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!
