Help.. can't upgrade from 2.9.16 to 2.9.19 ftp denied

I have enabled the ftp service but ftp is denied and I am not able to ftp into the routerOS at all to upgrade it. How am I suppose to upgrade this? Even tried sticking the files in 2.8.26 routeros to transfer files but the files are not recognised so that I can upgrade the beta.
