Destination directory for file streaming does not exist or is not writable

I have a server that is having issues with plugin updates. The client requested the ability to be able to update plugins on their own so we set disallow_file_mods to false in our production.php environment file.
Config::define(‘DISALLOW_FILE_MODS’, false);

We have also tried re-provisioning and re-deploying.

We are able to upload new plugins but can’t update through wordpress on production. Any thoughts on what might be going on?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

UPDATE: I am able to upload a new plugin but still can’t install/update via the wordpress install page.

Hopefully this helps someone else! After searching the web for solutions and trying a myriad of options it turns out that it was just a plugin conflict… :joy: … Anywho I was tailing error logs in /srv/www/SITENAME/logs/error.log and noticed a whole bunch of errors coming from one particular plugin. After deactivating the plugin everything updated as expected.
