I am trying to update a plugin and I receive this failed message "update failed: could not create directory." I see that it's a permission issue. I have searched online and have found ways that may solve it, but you must have a web host(which I am not) and use Filezilla. I am on my own pc using my localhost with Wampserver64 Windows10 I should have full control permission. How can I fix this issue "update failed: could not create directory" on a localhost.

You should as yuo say have full control if you are starting WAMPServer in the normal way.

So there must be something else going on here.

Where are you trying to install this plugin? And what are you plugging in TO?

(Windows 10 Pro 64bit) (Wampserver 3.1.3 32bit & 64bit)
<Apache 2.4.29/2.2.31> <PHP 7.2/7.1/7.0/5.6/5.5/5.4> <MySQL 5.7.19/5.6.39/5.5.28>
<MariaDB 10.2.14> <phpMyAdmin4.8.1> <MySQL Workbench 6.3.10>

Read The Manuals Apache -- MySQL -- PHP -- phpMyAdmin
Get your Apache/MySQL/mariaDB/PHP ADDONs here from the WAMPServer alternate Repo
