I can't say I have any experience running an FTP daemon (SCP/SFTP and
the OpenSSH server fulfil most of my needs) but this screams "UNIX
file permissions problem" to me.
Make sure that the directory you're trying to upload to is world
writable (i.e. chmod 777) as the FTP server should be running as an
unprivileged user, given that you logged in anonymously.
