Comment(by pavelevap):

 I tried Filezilla and Total Commander, but I could not find current server
 path, everywhere is only ftp://user.domain.eu@ftp.domain.eu.

 Adding your code to wp-config.php changed error, now there is:

 "Unable to locate WordPress Plugin directory."

 So, I tried adding to wp-config.php:

 define('FTP_PLUGIN_DIR', '/');

 It helps a little and following text appears (for installing plugin WP
 Memory Usage):

 Downloading install package from http://downloads.wordpress.org/plugin/wp-

 Unpacking the package…

 Installing the plugin…

 Incompatible Archive.

 Plugin install failed.

 Tmp folder works well, also in directory upgrade there is subdirectory wp-
 memory-usage.tmp created with all files from this plugin.

 First error is probably somehow related to "Visitor Maps and Who's Online"
 plugin. In wp-content there is folder visitor-maps-backup (chmod 755)
 which is for this plugin, but how can this influence installation of new
 plugin? After deactivating this plugin there is only the second error
 messagge about array_keys(). But this error can be also related to the
 original problem with unrecognized backslash in FTP_CONTENT_DIR?
