Most of these errors are caused by damaged or corrupt theme files. Upload theme files/directory again and you will be fine. Strange things happen sometimes, that's why it's always recommended to keep a backup of your WordPress files and database before updating.
Because I had cut and pasted define(’FS_METHOD’,’direct’); from the web, the incorrect quote characters were pasted into the file. should be define('FS_METHOD', 'direct'); The incorrect quote character also changed the encoding of the file somehow. If anyone has deeper knowledge of this issue please let me know in the comments.
