Hi there
You need to modify your file permissions

Change the permissions of the directorye /wp-content to 0775 and if that doesn’t work change it to 0777. Make sure you change the permissions that you changed while trying to resolve the issue, back.

set permission 777 to both of these folders wp-content and uploads
Login to your admin page, Go to settings, Go to Miscellaneous, Find Store uploads in this folder "/wp-content/uploads"
and If the / is there before wp-content remove it.
