I received the following message when trying to install WordPress:
"Warning: 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. (WordPress could not establish a secure connection to WordPress.org. Please contact your server administrator.)
The problem appears to be in the update.php file as this is mentioned 3 times in the error message dialog.
home/mysite/public_html/wp-includes/update.php on line 120, line 267 and line 407
I examined the file update.php and lines 120 and 267 are just blank empty lines. Line 407 does not even exist because the file is just 267 lines long.
I am new to using WordPress and trying to get it to install for the first time. Can someone please help me?
