Verify permissions before update failed

I am using ACL to define permission on my wordpress folder, this is globally working fine, except when updating wordpress via web UI, the updates failed and I have to do it manually.
The error is

Warning: chmod(): Operation not permitted in /home/myuser/www/website/wp-admin/includes/class-wp-filesystem-direct.php on line 173

Then the installation is in invalid state.

So there is two improvements to prevent this case:

  • Verify all conditions & permissions before upgrading wordpress to find issues before starting to modify installation.
  • Handle ACL permissions.

Thank you for your consideration.
