    Any zip file for a WordPress plugin created in macOS has stopped working in the latest version of WordPress 6.4.3, when I upload the zip file I get an “Incompatible Archive.” error, the same zip files are working in v6.4.2.
    I know zip files created in macOS include an extra __macfilename folder but that was never a problem before.
    How to produce error
    Download any plugin on macOS such as Akismet unzip and zip again it won’t upload on WordPress 6.4.3

    Unti this bug is fixed I suggest you add this line of code in the functions.php of your child theme or a functional plugin:

    add_filter( 'unzip_file_use_ziparchive', '__return_false' );

    Or if you prefer it, you can transfer via FTP the plugin that includes that line of code.

    I hope it helps

    Thanks but Unfortunately, I have my own plugins and need users to be able to update the plugins without stupid bugs, it’s not practical to ask them to add code snippets to update the plugins. Using keka to zip for now

    we are getting the exact same error, I am part of WP Rocket support team, and this is happening to our MacOS users, and with multiple different helper plugins we distribute as zip files.
    This is the bug report:
