I am perplexed with an issue on two sites I host which are using Wordpress. Yesterday I set about exploring a new theme and clicked the option to add a new theme and gained an error on screen.
I tried the same with a plugin and again got an error.
I switched to the other Wordpress site on a different domain and have the same issues.
The Wordpress error is remarkably obtuse.
“An unexpected error occurred. Something may be wrong with WordPress.org or this server’s configuration…”
I’ve done all the Google and support forum searches that I can think of. A number of solutions are offered but none seem to be relevant to or work for me.
I wondering if anyone else has experienced something like this and found a solution. I have Symbiosis with Jessie and an upgrade to php7.1 using dotdeb repositories.
I can add new themes/plugins manually via FTP - it just the built in options within Wordpress that seem not be functioning.
