I have manually tried to update to 3.8.3 on my Wordpress site but I am recieving the following
Downloading update from https://downloads.wordpress.org/release/wordpress-3.8.3-no-content.zip…
Unpacking the update…
The update cannot be installed because we will be unable to copy some files. This is usually due to inconsistent file permissions.: wp-admin/includes/update-core.php
Please note I have done the following after looking at a similar post
sudo chgrp -R www-data /var/www
sudo chmod -R g+w /var/www
