Changes (by dd32):

 * milestone:  Future Release => 4.5


 > * The zip is downloaded and extracted to the same location by the auto-
 update upgrade and it begins to copy files
 > * The manual update finishes and removes the files it was copying from

 For what it's worth, this is no longer the case in 4.4+, both updates will
 now succeed as they're copying from unique directories, but we should
 still attempt to prevent the two updates occurring at the same time to
 improve the chances that the one which is running will succeed.

 Another scenario is where two site admins see the update alert, and hit
 update at roughly the same time.
