  • Try and replace all files and folders except wp-content folder of same version wordpress see if that solves the problem.

    thanks for that, sadly it didnt work, i also tryed a completely clean install of wordpress and its still giving me the same error

    IT could be that the hosting provider is blocking or filtering / tampering any type of outgoing http traffic from your WordPress installation.

    Check with the hosting provider.
