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

Try using the admintool component from Akeeba. It will fix permissions and update.
