    Hi there

    I installed WordPress version 3.5.1 last night. Today, I have tried to install a maintenance mode plug in and a theme. On both occasions, I've received the following error message.

    An unexpected error has occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server's configuration. IF you continue to have problems, please use the support forums.

    My website is http://www.mummywifeme.com

    Many thanks

    Try these steps first:

    • flush any caching plugins you might be running, as well as server and/or browser caches.
    • deactivate all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s). Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.
    • If you can't get into your admin dashboard, try resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin (read this page if you need help).
    • switch to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.
    • If you can't log in to change themes, you can remove the theme folders via FTP so the only one is twentyeleven. That will force your site to use it.
    • manual upgrade. When all else fails, download a fresh copy of the latest.zip file of 3.5 (top right on this page) to your computer, and use that to copy up. You may need to delete the wp-admin and wp-includes folders on your server. Read the Manual Update directions first.
    • check the Master List to see if you're experiencing a known issue: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/troubleshooting-wordpress-35-master-list
