Error message when updating Plugins

I was updating Yoast and a couple of other plugins and received the following message: Update Failed: 500 Internal Server Error Internal Server Error The server encountered an internal error or misconfiguration and was unable to complete your request. Please contact the server administrator and inform them of the time the error occurred, and the actions you performed just before this error. More information about this error may be available in the server error log. This is just after not having my web site load for the past two days and was told I has an "RTT of 172ms" causing a time out error. Suddenly I'm able to access the back end and thought updating my plugins and deleting the ones I don't use would make a long term difference. Please help! Thank you!
