Comment (by asdasDan):

 Well in response to the /wp-content versus ./wp-content. I believe
 wordpress if it were to validate it would validate the path off of
 ABSPATH, so /wp-content/uploads would work.

 This code was able to fix it on line 150 of wp-admin/options.php:

  if ( $option == 'upload_path' && !file_exists(ABSPATH . $value) ) {
         add_settings_error('general', 'path-does-not-exist', __('Media
 Uploads Folder does not exist.'), 'error');
  } elseif ( $option == 'upload_path' && !is_readable(ABSPATH . $value) ) {
         add_settings_error('general', 'path-not-readable', __('Media
 Uploads Folder is not readable.'), 'error');
