Support » Fixing WordPress » Update: An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org

  • When I try to get new plugins from the WP Plugin page, I get have had the following error since days ago.

    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 read in some posts that I need to “replace wp-includes/update.php after downloading a fresh WordPress zip from here : https://wordpress.org/download/ That should help fix it.”

    Unfortunately it didn’t… So I looked at the code in the update.php file and noted that two web links are prevalent in the file. I copy-pasted them into my browser in turn and got surprising results:
    api.wordpress.org/plugins/update-check/1.1/ – returns the words “error”; and
    api.wordpress.org/core/version-check/1.7/ – returns some test that appears to be some sort of code.

    My conclusion – there is something wrong with wordpress.org!
