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

    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.

    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.
