When trying to use the internal Update button, the browser just spins it’s wheels. When looking at the PHP error log, I have this:
[24-Jan-2014 06:25:15 UTC] PHP 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.) in /(path)/wp-admin/includes/update.php on line 117
I installed the Background Updater Tester plug-in just to see what it had to say and it shows the following:
PASS: Your WordPress install can communicate with WordPress.org securely.
PASS: No version control systems were detected.
PASS: Your installation of WordPress doesn’t require FTP credentials to perform updates.
WARNING: Couldn#8217;t retrieve a list of the checksums for WordPress 3.8. This could mean that connections are failing to WordPress.org.
I know I can do a manual upgrade but this is a pain. It used to work fine (I did perform a manual upgrade to version 3.8 due to the same issues.)
Anyway, what should be my next troubleshooting or investigatory steps be?
