Error updating plugins in WordPress 3.5

Jan 30, 2013 by SunFun
Hi all
I am currently using WordPress 3.5, when I try to update any plugin I get the bellow error  message
"An error occurred while updating Form: The package could not be installed. “
“PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-4) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature."
I really have no idea what’s going on and what’s causing this.
I would appreciate any feedback on this
Thank you all.

Create a tmp folder under the wp-content directory make sure you give it writing permissions. Add this line to the last line of your wp-config.php file.
 define('WP_TEMP_DIR', MYPATH . 'wp-content/tmp');
