Connection error on my wordpress (4 posts)

    So I discovered this error on my website http://www.lindbergdavid.com when trying to search for new plugins, I just keep getting this message:
    "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".

    And when I try to update my wordpress it already says I have the latest one "3.8.3" which I know isn't the latest one at the moment. I think the latest one right now is 3.9.1.

    So I try to re-install my current version but then I'm getting this message:
    "Downloading update from https://downloads.wordpress.org/release/wordpress-3.8.3-no-content.zip…
    Download failed.
    Installation Failed"

    So it looks like I'm having some connection troubles, right?

    I've asked my host one.com but they said it isn't a problem on their side and that I should contact wordpress instead.

    So, what can I do to solve this problem?

    Thanks in advance!

    Your website seems to be working fine now. how did you go?

    if your still experiencing issues, id try upgrading manually and see if that works. be sure to backup first.

    Yeah well it runs ok but the problem is that I can't search or update plugins, and I can't even update WordPress without doing it manually. But as you said maybe that's the only choice I have, so I'll ask a guy who knows how to do it!

    That's more than likely a permissions issue. WordPress can't write the new files. Updates wil work fine with correct permissions. See Changing File Permissions « WordPress Codex
