    I am not able to search for plugins from the WordPress dashboard.
    I was originally, but for some reason when I now try I get an error message saying “an unknown error occurred.”

    Any idea what to do?

    Have you tried:

    – deactivating 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).

    – switching to the default theme to rule out any theme-related problems?

    Thanks for quick reply.
    Yes, I have done both (deactivate all plugins, switch to default theme). The problem remains in both cases.

    Try re-uploading the wp-admin and wp-includes folders from a fresh download of your current version of WordPress.

    Thanks again!

    OK, I just downloaded the current version of WordPress, unzipped the file, uploaded the wp-admin and wp-includes folders to my site via ftp.

    Exited WordPress, re-entered WordPress.

    No change. I get the same error message when I search for any plugin from the dashboard.

    Could be a server configuration issue – something you’d need to talk to your hosts about.

    No way this is a server config issue. I have 3 different installs (one fresh) on 3 different servers and after the latest WP upgrade I also started getting this error
