Answer

This line is the problem:

if (radio_view_upload.SelectedIndex == 2)

Your radio_view_upload RadioButtonList only has 2 choices, so your if-statement will always go to the Else part. Only SelectedIndex 0 and 1 are available.

In most programming languages the first item in an array, collection, list etc will have 0 as starting index.

You could also use if (radio_view_upload.SelectedValue == "myValue"), but for this to work you have to add a value="myValue" to the ListItems.

UPDATE

Inside <ContentTemplate> you have a <tr> <td> and a </td> </tr> without matching <table> </table> tags. Maybe those tags are outside the UpdatePanel and not visible in your snippet. You should add/move those inside the UpdatePanel.

UPDATE 2

    <asp:ScriptManager ID="ScriptManager1" runat="server"></asp:ScriptManager>
    <asp:FileUpload ID="FileUpload1" runat="server" />
    <br />
    <br />
    <asp:Label runat="server" ID="lbl_caption_upload" Text="caption" CssClass="label"></asp:Label>
    <br />
    <asp:TextBox runat="server" ID="txt_caption_upload" TextMode="MultiLine" CssClass="textbox"></asp:TextBox>
    <br />
    <asp:RadioButtonList runat="server" ID="radio_view_upload" OnSelectedIndexChanged="radio_view_upload_SelectedIndexChanged" AutoPostBack="True">
        <asp:ListItem Text="custom"></asp:ListItem>
        <asp:ListItem Text="public"></asp:ListItem>
    </asp:RadioButtonList>
    <br />

    <asp:UpdatePanel ID="UpdatePanel1" runat="server">
        <Triggers>
            <asp:AsyncPostBackTrigger ControlID="radio_view_upload" />
        </Triggers>
        <ContentTemplate>
            <asp:Panel runat="server" ID="placeholder_panel" Visible="true" CssClass="hide">
                <asp:Label runat="server" ID="lbl_genre_upload" Text="genre" CssClass="label"></asp:Label>
                <br />
                <asp:CheckBoxList runat="server" ID="check_genre_upload" DataTextField="Title" DataValueField="ID" RepeatColumns="7" RepeatDirection="Horizontal"></asp:CheckBoxList>
            </asp:Panel>
        </ContentTemplate>
    </asp:UpdatePanel>
