permissions – can update plugin from admin bar button, but not plugin menu


for some reason I’m having trouble updating plugins. Clicking the update plugin button in the admin top bar DOES work, trying to do the same from the Plugin Menu does not. Also, I can’t seem to enable auto-updates or delete plugins from the admin dashboard.

I’ve tried

find /path/to/website -type d -exec chmod 755 {} ;

find /path/to/website -type f -exec chmod 644 {} ;

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /path/to/website

I’ve also checked and confirmed that

define( 'DISALLOW_FILE_EDIT' , false);
define('DISALLOW_FILE_MODS', false );

Those two variables were both false. I’m not sure what else could be happening here. Does anyone have any ideas?
