When upgrading winscp client with /verysilent I get an error box:

Unable to execute file in temporary directory. Setup aborted
Error5: Access is denied

Not on all clients though.

While troubleshooting I noticed that the clients that do not have the c:\temp folder have this problem.

Is this a bug?

Thanks for your report.
Can you enable installer logging using /log=c:\path\to\log.log switch and attach the log here?
