Im trying to update my WordPress site automatically. It normally works, but for this one its showing : Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.3.1-partial-0.zip…

Unpacking the update…

Warning: copy(/home/username/webapps/wordpress-app/wp-admin/includes/update-core.php) [function.copy]: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /home/username/webapps/wordpress-app/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-direct.php on line 200

Could not copy files.

Installation Failed

I think all of a sudden write permissions have changed.

Hi,

Can you try running your upgrade directly using domain/wp-admin-upgrade.php?

or refreshing all the files in your directory from a fresh install except wp-content?
