Ran into this one today. A site with only SFTP/SSH access, and the server required the “FTP” method of updating plugins/WordPress. Remember FTPS is not SFTP. FTPS runs over HTTPS/SSL, while SFTP runs over SSH. Confusing?
Fortunately there’s a nice little plugin called, SSH SFTP Updater Support.
You must download it, then upload the contents of the zip into /wp-content/plugins/, then Activate the plugin in the admin. It will add an SSH2 (which is used for SFTP) option to your “Updates” screen.
Worked for me.
