if you have access to the linux server check
ls -ls /Directory/where/you/want/to/upload

Maybe you have to use another ftp user because anonymous must not write content into that directory...

If security isn't an important aspect you can simply
chmod 0777 /Directory/where/you/want/to/upload

j-ray's solution should work.

but try to login to the ftp server using another privileged user rather than allow "anonymous" user have full access to the directory.

what's your FTP server in Linux??, some FTP servers have configuration parameters regarding anonymous uploads.
