Failed to extract the bundled plugin

I am seeing the following error in my logs when attempting to run a job or on startup:

SEVERE  hudson.LocalPluginManager#loadBundledPlugins: Failed to extract the bundled plugin scm-api.hpi File '/nobackup/jenkins/plugins/scm-api.jpi' cannot be written to


This issue typically happens when an hpi or jpi plugin file is copied into the $JENKINS_HOME/plugins directory with incorrect permissions. To resolve this, modify the file ownership permissions of the file(s) to match the username under which Jenkins is running.
