modules/system/modules/index.php code on line 153 looks at '/files' for writability but outputs that modules is not writable.

Once I made files +w then the message disappeared.

I've improved the error message to:

"Module uploads are not allowed. Please check permissions on the /modules and /files directories."

so you can have a fighting chance to figure it out and solve it.
