The first one is because of security restrictions imposed by your host. You are presented with FTP login info screen when you try to install any plugin (w/o using Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades plugin), isn't it? Try contacting the host to see if they can help you with this. If that is not an option, my advice is to switch to a WordPress friendly host like HostGator.

Thanks for your repy. Actually, when I deactivate the Easy Theme and Plugin Upgrades plugin, there are no error messages. Does that imply that it is not a problem with my web host?

Have you tried searching for the exact error message (the first one) in Google?

This was brought up once before:
However,there was no follow-up on the post by the original poster, so the general assumption was/is that a solution or an alternate was found.
Here is the actual code which shows that error:
The only other thing I could find online was someone having that exact error message when they were using FF on Vista, which in my view shouldn't matter at all. However, to start diving into this more, what browser are you using, what system [again these shouldn't matter but it's good to have the info in case they do], which host and what kind of setup do you have [very important and may be the reason]?
More info on the actual WordPress FileSystem API:
Again, I don't have a solution but maybe these can spark some kind of a good idea of the next step to take.

I updated an existing child theme and received the same WP Filesystem error.
I them refreshed my site, and a "Site is being Updated" message appeared.
Then I reactivated each plugin one at at time, still same "Site is Being Updated" message.
I then deactivated Easy Theme Upgrades plugin and the site refreshed okay.
Here's my setup:
Browser:Firefox 5.0; Windows 7; WordPress Version = 3.2.1; PHP Version = 5.2.12; Host = Hosting Matters
BTW, I had this same problem with the beta version of Easy Themes Upgrade plugin on more than one site.
Let me know what additional information you would like.
