    Whenever I try to upgrade my plugin automatically I get the following message:

    Download failed.: name lookup timed out

    Plugin upgrade Failed

    I need this to work because I have many plugins, and don't want to have to do it manually.

    Thanks!

    Perhaps something here will be of help? Appears to be similar symptoms listed. A couple appeared to have resolutions.

    None of those solutions are working. For the /etc/hosts/ solution, would be host have to do that?

    I cannot upgrade my wordpress to 2.8.4 automatically or manually. the last time i tried manually i had to restore my whole site. The error message i get is

    Unable to locate WordPress Root directory.

    Installation Failed

    Urgent help as cannot upgrade any of my plugins either.

    How ridiculous that there are so many threads on this exact topic - and no solution or even suggested solution. Bummer!
