    To anybody running Ubuntu 14.04 - they broke zlib, so you'll get

    Abort class-pclzip.php : Missing zlib extensions

    From the "Debugging" tab of UpdraftPlus

    Try creating a file wp-content/mu-plugins/gzopen.php (you will need to create the directory wp-content/mu-plugins if it does not already exist), with these contents:

    if (!function_exists('gzopen') && function_exists('gzopen64')) {
    function gzopen($filename , $mode = 'r', $use_include_path = 0 )
    {
    return gzopen64($filename , $mode, $use_include_path);
    }
    }

    That ought to provide you with a temporary workaround.

    Best wishes,
    David
