WordPress plugin installation not working

I am trying to setup a wordpress project locally on my Kubuntu, using Apache2. I have already installed Woocommerce, and i want to add Woocommerce Bookings, so i’ve downloaded the zip.

Quoting the documentation :

Download the .zip file from your WooCommerce account. Go to: WordPress
Admin > Plugins > Add New to upload the file you downloaded. Activate
the extension.

I’ve tried to do this, and i have this error :

Unable to create directory wp-content/uploads/2017/04. Is its parent
directory writable by the server?

So I’ve tried to change the apache directory to set it on my /home/user, chmod 765 -R / chown user -R / chgrp -R the directory, and it still doesn’t work. I’ve also tried to set the content of the zip archive in the plugins folder, but still nothing. Also tried to create myself the uploads/2017/04 folder, but i have a similar error (cannot copy the content).

Can anyone help me with this ?
