This sounds like a permission issue with your media directory.

If you have just upgraded to Magento changed the file permission in the Varien_File_Uploader class.

You can set the correct file permissions using the documentation on the Magento site However if its a live site I would make sure to back it up and put into maintenance mode. If your not comfortable with changing file permissions I would contact your hosting company.

I would also enable logging and check the logs to see what the exact error is incase its not a file permission error.
