    I just ran a test... the issue lies within cURL. I'm going to search wordpress and see if there's any solution to that. Reinstalling cURL did not help.

    I cannot fix this issue with cURL... any suggestions?

    I installed Core Control on WordPress and disabled cURL. The only other transport option is PHP Streams... for some reason php fsockopen is not available even though it is enabled in php.ini .

    However I HATE php streams transport... it's SLOOOWWWW! It takes almost 30 seconds to load the add new plugins page... and 30 seconds every time I search for a plugin or go to the next page.

    I want my curl back!

    Tried reinstalling curl, php5, php5-curl, it all did not work. Tried reconfiguring my internet router... did not work! Disabled all plugins... did not work! Replaced wp-includes and wp-admin... did not work!

    By the way do not know if I mentioned this... but this problem started very randomly.

    Having the same issues on two upgrades to WP 3.3, and all was fine prior to the upgrade. An additional issue I am experiencing is random insertion of characters after the main site URL, which results in 404 Page Not Found errors. At first I thought it was foul play, but my Web host has given the account an all clear. This URL insertion never occurred prior to the upgrade. I have tried just about every remedy mentioned in this string, and to date nothing has fixed the issues. My two affected WP sites have very different themes and plugins, so I don't expect a simple cure.

    Unorthodox solution: I have two near identical accounts at GoDaddy, one runs WP 3.3 fine and the other with the errors noted above. As all the remedies listed in this string had not helped, I obtained a dedicated IP address for the account not working. The goal was not to have a static IP, but a different IP than what I was using. After many interim errors while the new IP was propagating the Web, in the end the errors in the dashboard RSS feeds, searching for new plugins, and the RSS widget went away. I don't know exactly who was blocking the address or why, but changing the address fixed the issues.

    Per qualche ragione essa si fissa dopo aver reinstallato molti dei miei strumenti di Internet come php e utility di rete. Io uso Ubuntu quindi non credo che nessuno di voi lo usano. Se quindi per favore dimmi e cercherò di dirvi quello che ho fatto!


    For some reason after reinstalling it fixed many of my Internet tools like php and network utilities. I use Ubuntu so I do not think any of you use it. If so please tell me and I'll tell you what I did!


    Hmm Google Translate seems to be a piece of crap! lol.

    One reason for this problem(s) can be firewall on the server. Server simply cannot access wordpress.org. So, you can check firewall settings and open access to wordpress.org if necessarily. Worked for me.
