Does your PHP install have the ZIP extension available?

Do Plugin Installs suceed?

Generally, Upgrade/Installs errors are due to incomplete Zip downloads.

If it fails consistantly, try disabling the zip extension:

add_filter('unzip_file_use_ziparchive', create_function('', 'return  

If that doesnt help (And i *hope* it doesnt.. because that'll mean  
something weird is up with the PHP Zip extension), Then try installing my  
plugin 'Core Control', Activate the HTTP Access module, and try disabling  
the current default transport.. See if that helps you at all
