    WordPress Not Updating Error “This is usually due to inconsistent file permis…, by derian00

    I am attempting to update to 4.8.3 but when I click the update button it loads, tells me it’s downloading the update, unpacking the update, the update fails as soon as it starts unpacking the update. (see image below), plugins are all updating perfectly fine, just updated Yoast this morning in seconds with literally no problem at all.

    So far I have tried advice from Reddit of the following:

    Reset the permissions of all files to 664:
    find /path/to/site/ -type f -exec chmod 664 {} \;

    Reset permissions of directories to 775:
    find /path/to/site/ -type d -exec chmod 775 {} \;

    Reset the group to the wordpress group (or whatever group makes sense for you)
    chgrp -R wordpress /path/to/site/

    and I ran the first two commands as follows:
    find /var/www/html -type f -exec chmod 664 {} \;
    find /var/www/html -type d -exec chmod 775 {} \;

    but when I attempted the chgrp I got the error “invalid group: wordpress”

    I have also tried adding the line “define(‘FS_METHOD’,’direct’);” and it didn’t change anything.
