Can upload but can't download

I'm able to upload to ftp sites, but when I try to download files from the same sites I receive:

Error: Failed to open "/file" for writing
Error: File transfer failed

However, I'm able to use other ftp clients to upload and download to the same ftp sites. I can also successfully download the files on filezilla by using the "view/edit" option instead of the download option.

Any ideas how to fix this problem?

"view/edit" downloads the file in a temporary directory where you most likely have write access to.

However, the directory where you are actively trying to download to does not seem to have write access for your user. Does fixing the directory permissions or using another download directory work for you?
