I had this issue quite a few time and it's always related to the Uploads folder (and existing sub-folders) not having correct write/read permission but also www-data not being the owner of the files.
I used to fix this by Chown-ing the /var/www/ folder like this
chown -R www–data:www-data /var/www/ considering "www" is the Known root folder.
You can also add yourself to the www-data group :
usermod -a -G www-data (your username) then use this command to fix the permissions issues of the Uploads folder :
chgrp www-data /var/www/Uploads and then
chmod g+rwxs /var/www/Uploads You might also want to use the -R option to give write permission recursively :
chmod -R ug+rw foldername
