Have you resolved this problem yet? Please let us know. If not, it sounds to me like you may have a permissions problem that is preventing you from uploading the file.

I have installed a new opencart 188.8.131.52 and made a backup from the other opencart and restored with it with fresh install.
Anyone have an idea what it could be?
I am using OC 184.108.40.206.
Fortunately, I can do backups and restores through phpmyadmin, but I really would love it if my site was working properly. I'm affraid it may point to a larger issue and, if so, I don't know what else could go wrong.
All of my google searches for this issue come up empty...no solution to this problem is posted anywhere.
If that doesn't work, you should try to restore the backup file from phpmyadmin: open phpmyadmin, select your opencart database, click on the Import tab, select the backup file and press GO. It is recommended that you backup before you do this as well.
This information was given to me by a friend, and has helped me restore when I need it. I have not figured out how to exactly fix the opencart interface problem.
I hope this can help you.
Did you try to increase the maximum allowed size for uploaded files in php.ini (globally, eg. in /etc/php5/apache2/php.ini).
I was having this problem and I fixed this way:
; Maximum allowed size for uploaded files.
upload_max_filesize = 5M
You should open the .htaccess and see the solution for yourself - Just uncomment below lines and you should be good to go.
# 3. Set max upload file size. Most hosts will limit this and not allow it to be overridden but you can try
php_value upload_max_filesize 999M
# 4. set max post size. uncomment this line if you have a lot of product options or are getting errors where forms are not saving all fields
php_value post_max_size 999M
