    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.
