I’d like to ask you for help with an issue regarding a plugin Yoast SEO update. After I have updated to the new WordPress I cannot do the Yoast SEO update and get the following message “Update Failed: The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions.”
Is there any way you could help me with solving this? Thank you.
This WordPress error usually means that your folder permissions are set too restrictive for either the /wp-content/ folder and/or the /wp-content/plugins/ folder.
Please Try first to Update the Plugin a couple of times, it can be some temporary server-side issue.
