    Hello Billz36,

     

    So the managed wordpress hosting is not going to allow root perms in the shared hosting environment but that should not be preventing you from updating or installing new plugins.

     

    In order to get a more detailed diagnosis I suggest calling into our support to see if we are able to duplicate the issue and identify if maybe you have a folder permissions issue instead of user permissions.
