Updating failed.

Also, I am not able to update the WPML plugin. I get the following message:

Sorry for the delay. This is probably some file permission problem. Access your FTP and within the wp-content/plugins/ directory, change the permissions of the directories and try to update again. You can see in the WordPress documentation:

If the problem persists, I'll need to request temporary access (wp-admin and FTP) to your site - preferably to a test site where the problem has been replicated if possible - in order to be of better help.

*** Please, can I install the Duplicator plugin (or All in One Migration) to make a copy of your site and install it on my test environment? This will help me debug the problem.

*** Note: Please make a full backup of your site.

My issue is resolved now.

I asked WPEngine support to solve the file permission issue. Not sure what they did (apparently chnaged some config). Anyway, after that I was able to update the WPML plugins a now, I can modify the translations without any problem.

Thank you!
