[resolved] "RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: Couldn't resolve host 'wordpress.org'" (3 posts)

    I'm getting this error when I try to update my plugins, although now all plugins are listed as up to date, so I'm not sure if the update really did work or not...

    I also get this error when I try to update core:

    Download failed.: Couldn't resolve host 'wordpress.org'

    Installation Failed"

    (Though again, it seems to have updated me to 3.8 in spite of the error msg...)

    And this error when I try to search for/install new plugins:

    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.

    I tried reinstalling the wp-includes folder, but that didn't solve the problem.

    One thing to note: the site is hosted on Yahoo! Small Business (not my choice), which has caused problems for me in the past - such as the inability to use permalinks or contact forms. I'm looking to move my client to a new host, but in the meantime would like to fix these new issues (which only just began recently) if possible.

    Many thanks in advance for your help.

    Please refer to the instructions on performing a clean Manual Update and do so.

    Thank you - when I first tried the clean-out, it didn't appear anything had changed (even after clearing the cache), but a few days later I have checked again and it seems to have worked. Thanks again!
