How to fix WordPress Plugin upgrade failed error

An error occured while updating wp google map plugin: Could not remove the old plugin..

Enabling Maintenance mode…

Plugin upgrade failed.

I looked at various fixes, the first one is

Added follwing in wp-config.php

define(‘FS_METHOD’, ‘ftpsockets’);
define(‘FTP_BASE’, ‘/path/to/wordpress/’);
define(‘FTP_CONTENT_DIR’, ‘/path/to/wordpress/wp-content/’);
define(‘FTP_PLUGIN_DIR ‘, ‘/path/to/wordpress/wp-content/plugins/’);
define(‘FTP_USER’, ‘username’);
define(‘FTP_PASS’, ‘password’);
define(‘FTP_HOST’, ‘ftp.example.org’);

But that was not successful.

After that i tried by setting 755 to all folders and 644 for files.

file-permission

folder-permission

Problem solved,Plugin updation is now working fine.
