Hi, I can't update akeeba beackup for wordpress, after extra the plugin the system show me this message:

There was an error communicating with the update package extraction script restore.php. This usually indicates a permissions issue making this file unreadable to the web server or a server configuration (e.g. .htaccess file directives) issue blocking access to this file.

How can I solve it?

currently there is a bug in automatic updates, leading to the error you reported.
A new version will be published very soon, in the meantime you can manually update the component.
