I don't think you are running a FTP server, are you? At least you did not
mention which FTP server you would be using or how you configured it...

However, I guess you don't want to operate a FTP server at all and rather should
set the FS_METHOD in your wp-config.php to 'direct'. This selects a mode in
which files are manipulated directly without relying on a FTP connection.
