    Hi,

    I have a fresh install of wordpress 3.4.1. When I go to wpadmin > Plugins > Add New I get the following error message under the “Popular tags” section:

    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.

    Also, when I try to install a plugin i get the error

    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.

    Try again

    Also, on the admin dashboard I see “RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: couldn’t connect to host” for the WordPress Blog and Other WordPress new.

    I searched for similar problems and also tried various solutions but none work. Can anyone guide me on this?

    Thanks

    I am facing similar problems on my other site: http://techtalk.virendrachandak.com

    It seems the theme Twenty Eleven is either broken or corrupted. You may download a fresh copy from WordPress repository and replace the existing copy. If the problem still continues, deactivate the plugins and activate them one by one to check if any plugin is causing the problem.

    It is a clean WordPress install. I was facing issues on my old site that’s why I installed a fresh copy of WordPress. Also, I haven’t added any plugins apart from the default that comes with WordPress.

    Also, after some debugging I think the problem might be with the hosting, as I am unable to connect to Akismet too. I am not very sure if that’s the case. I have reached out to my hosting provider and I hope I can get something useful back from them.

    It seems there was some issue with the hosting service. They did some maintenance on their end, and probably caused some firewall issues which was causing all the issues with my sites.

    It can be with your hosting if they block SMTP. I use a free host and I can not use most plugins and I have the same error on my dashboard. I would try to troubleshoot with the host.
