    Hi there,

    I'm new to WordPress - (graphic design background) and have installed the latest version of WP locally on my Macbook. Using MAMP which is running without issue. Least I think it is - the two status lights are green.

    However, once I using themes options under the 'Install Theme' tab, I am getting the following error message on a new page:

    An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration. If you continue to have problems, please try the support forums.

    The site is local with address:
    /*http://localhost:8888*/

    Have looked on the forum, but not finding any solution that is helping...

    Hope someone can help and direct me in the right direction.

    Many thanks!
