Solution: If you can update plugins and / or themes but still not the Wordpess core update, try to deactivate all plugins and then update. Activate plugins again after update is finished.


Getting an error message “Could not create directory.: /public_html/wp-content/upgrade”

Solution: Try changing the permissions on the /wp-content directory to 766 on your server / web hotel. If you still have problems, try 767, 775 or 777.
