    I cannot update my version of WP to 3.8. Any insights?

    "Downloading update from https://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.8-new-bundled.zip…
    Unpacking the update…
    Could not copy file.: wordpress/wp-admin/includes/meta-boxes.php
    Installation Failed"

    Additionally, I am unable to update or install any plugins.

    Hi ftcoll,

    It is not recommended to update directly from 2.8 to 3.8. Kindly take a backup of your wordpress. If the installation is failing it might be due to execution time.

    Kindly download wordpress 3.8 from wordpress.org and then extract the zip and via ftp only upload wp-admin and wp-includes folder.

    Should be fine.

  4. That's not it, his site is reporting 3.7


    But there's something odd going on with that installation as I can't get the WordPress part to load for me.

    ftcoll does your web server's error_log file tell you anything?
