[Resolved] Update checks, Feeds, and are inaccessible

    I just updated to 3.7.1 from the latest version of 3.6.

    After upgrading, the dashboard feeds simply displayed the error “RSS Error: WP HTTP Error: couldn’t connect to host”.

    Update checks produced errors in log files:

    If I go to the “install plugins” plugins page, these error messages are displayed:

    Basically, it looks like this installation of wordpress can’t access any sources of data hosted outside of wordpress.

    Any ideas?

  • I had a similar problem to the feeds before I upgraded to 3.7.1. However, that was because I am behind a firewall. I fixed that by defining proxies in my wp-config.php.

    I still have the problem with plugin updates though. Although everything updates manually, I get those errors. I am assuming that it is because of the new feature of 3.7.1 and related to proxy as well.

    I will post again if I find any solution.

    Good luck!

    I have the same issue..

    I’m not having the issue with RSS feeds, but I am seeing the error on the updates page regarding plugin-install line 77.

    It looks like this issue was not related to the upgrade. My host said they made a routing change, which inadvertently broke a few things.

    is your webhosting Hostgator??

    I have the same problem !

    wp-admin/includes/plugin-install.php on line 77

    I said the problem to the host manager and he said there is no problem with host !

    No it is not a hosting provider problem but something in the code as I am on straight cPanel/WHM installs on dedicated servers I own and same thing is happening to all of our installs after upgrading to 3.7.1. Now after leaving the install alone for a bit it seems it automaticly updates to the latest versions of everything. Kind of weird if you ask me and possibly bad coding on WordPress’s side.

    I have exactly the same problem – where is the “resolution” of this thread (apart from arbitrary closure)?

    How about adding the following line to your wp-config.php:

    define( ‘DISABLE_WP_CRON’, true );

    to disable cron in WordPress.
