I had the same issue and I solved it!

In my case it was a configuration error. I created an FTP account on my host with access to "/public_html" and I configure FileZilla to access my website FTP with that account and in the "Advanced", I had a "Default distant folder" to "/public_html". That was my error cause I already gave the access to that folder so on login it go to "/public_html" by default and the FileZilla config add another folder like this "/public_html/public_html/". I replace my FileZilla configuration with "/" and that did the trick.

Hope it helps :)

That's because the configured Home on the FTP account becomes the root directory upon connect. Users are jailed into that tree and cannot go further up (unless explicitly configured by symlinks or aliases).
