    Hi there!
    I need your help please.
    When I’m trying to update plugins from my WP dashboard I’m getting this message:

    Couldn't resolve host 'downloads.wordpress.org'.

    Also, when I’m trying to visit http://www.downloads.wordpress.org it says the page not found.

    Could anyone provide information what’s going on?
    I have tried to search the forums, but I have found also old posts about this issue.

    I contacted my hosting provider and they claim it’s wordpress issue.

    Thanks for the help.

    That’s a DNS issue at your hosts’ end.

    You could try upgrading the plugins manually. Can you use FTP?

    Thank you esmi.
    Usually yes, but now I’m at work so I cannot access to FTP.
    Still don’t know what happenned and what to do. Anyone else have a solution for me?

    Is this a relatively new problem?

    It might be worth contacting your hosts to see if anything changed on the server in the last few days. Mistakes do happen when servers are tweaked.
