    Hi,
    this is my first posting here. I'm testing WP 3.7 beta 2 and I received the following Mail:

    FAILED: WordPress failed to update to WordPress 3.7-beta2-25774-20131014

    BETA TESTING?
    =============

    If you think these failures might be due to a bug in WordPress 3.7, could you report it?
    * Open a thread in the support forums: http://wordpress.org/support/forum/alphabeta
    * Or, if you're comfortable writing a bug report: http://core.trac.wordpress.org/

    Thanks! -- The WordPress Team

    I'm having the same issue. When I tried to trigger an update manually I get the following:

    Warning: disk_free_space() [function.disk-free-space]: Value too large for defined data type in /nfs/c02/h11/mnt/16179/domains/cdharrison.com/html/wp-admin/includes/file.php on line 725
    Could not create directory.

    Installation Failed

    @Gerd-E. — I just fixed my install by downloading the latest WordPress Nightly - http://wordpress.org/nightly-builds/wordpress-latest.zip - to my desktop, extracting the files and then uploading everything except for wp-content, replacing all that was already there.

    Once I did that, I was then able to upgrade plugins (which was suffering from the same disk_free_space() issue).

    Could this be MediaTemple related? I also have this issue.

    I can't update plugins too. Same warning. Enough drive space left. So I will manually update as Chris mentioned above.

    @Chantal — Any luck? (You manually updated via FTP/SFTP?)

    @Chris I manually copied all root files and wp-includes and wp-admin folders using FTP. Everything works now. Thanks.

    Around line 748 in file.php there are comment markers '//' that don't belong in the directory creation routine....took those out and it update fine. It's been fixed in the updated version.

  11. Is everyone working now after a manual update? It could be a glitch that you guys caught a bad update.

    @Ipstenu — Yup, I haven't had issues since the hiccup.

  13. Interesting. And other than the update, WP was working? If so, I would call it a successful failure ;)

    @Ipstenu — It worked, but it didn't allow anything to be upgraded… (I attempted to update several plugins and it returned a very similar error before I did a manual update of WP core files…)

    "Could not create directory" with the error code mkdir_failed_pclzip was a mistake in one of the nightly builds. We fixed it the next day, but basically, anyone who hit this error will need to manually update to get past that one broken build.

    You're right, uncommenting that line will fix things. It was not supposed to be commented out. :-)

    The disk_free_space() warning was really interesting! You're running WordPress on a 32-bit system, and you had too much free space for a 32-bit integer to handle. We fixed that in http://core.trac.wordpress.org/changeset/25831.

    Hi - I've got a similar problem, although I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask... trying to Update to 3.7, I get the message:
    "The activity failed to initialise: Unable to write to the local backup directory."
    Doesn't work as on online backup or an emailed one either. Same thing with plug-in updates... tearing my hair out here, and any pointers would be gratefully received - my info is here:
