I am having trouble installing the Plugin Builder plugin. I am installing it through the plugin manager in QGIS 2.18.0, and getting the following error message:
Plugin installation failed: Failed to unzip the plugin package. Probably it's broken or missing from the repository. You may also want to make sure that you have write permission to the plugin directory: C:/Users/_myUsername_/.qgis2/python/plugins
I definitely have write permission to this folder, I have tried rebooting and reinstalling QGIS to no avail. I am running the program as administrator.
Since there is no other way (as far as I can tell) of installing the Plugin Builder, can anyone help me trouble shoot this issue?
For reference this is actually true for all Plugins installed through the Plugin manager.
