Just trying to update our site so we can transfer it to another VPS.

What could cause this and how can I trouble shoot this. Is it permissions or could it be PHP or Plesk? Please advise if you have any information.

    it is a permission problem

    If you gonna change VPS take a backup of this one restore it in the new server (hope has cpanel) and then try to upgrade your joomla.

    Its the easiest procedure
