Thanks for posting. I'll have a look and see what I can see...

I have had a quick look and you are right... We still haven't fixed it! Argh! Ok here's how to fix it this time!

Log into your appliance via SSH (Webshell or an SSH client such as PuTTY) and run the following.

chown -R www-data wp-includes
chown -R www-data wp-admin/{js,css,includes,network}
chown www-data wp-admin/about.php
chown www-data readme.html
Now you should be able to update... Sorry about that.
