On occasion, directory permission changes or network blips cause a problem where a file can't be overwritten in the update process. This is not indicative of a problem. Use sftp or ftp to access your web server, remove the wordfence folder in wp-content/plugins, and reinstall wordfence from the dashboard > plugins > add new page of your web site's admin area.
