Comment (by gilmore_love):

 This seems to be an ongoing issue for over 8 years which surfaced again
 after I upgraded to 5.1 and not sure why the development team is not doing
 anything about it and this time is not only causing a problem on the auto
 update but almost on every page and I don't think turning of zlib
 compression is the solution. it's more like erasing the problem than
 finding a solution. If it's deprecated then it should be removed in the
 next update and if it should be fixed then fix it, please. Some of us put
 lots of effort and money on a website that once in a while these simple
 issues will be a tool for hackers to hijack our websites. WP is a great
 tool but I believe they should do a better job in fixing bugs and
 increasing security. this might not be a security issue but there are so
 many of these issues that can one day soon or late cause a security issue.
 now days almost every week we hear about a new security bug surfacing and
 scares the hell out of all of us.
