Cannot upgrade to 4.9.6

My host says I'm in 4.9.6, but my WP dashboard still says to update to 4.9.6. However, when I try, it simply says "Downloading updates fr--" and doesn't ever finish loading. If I try deactivating plugins, it says I don't have permission. If I try to edit the appearance of my blog, it gives me a 503 or something similar. If I try to upload media, I can't unless I use the manual uploader and upload one image at a time. I also cannot see my media in the Media tab. There are so many bugs at this point I don't even know what to do! Thanks so much for any help you can give me.

Welcome to Trac and thanks for the ticket!

I don't think your issue is related to WordPress core. From what you said above, it looks more like a problem with your hosting provider or server configuration. Permission issues are typically related to servers.

I would suggest you to contact your server support team for a solution. A large amount of WordPress sites have already been upgraded to 4.9.6 even I did it without any issue.

You are also advised to share your problem at

Please note, WordPress trac is for tracking WordPress core bugs. All server, contributed themes and contributed plugin issues are out of the scope of it.
