There was a problem connecting to the Textpattern update server. Please try again later
This is usually because (for reasons unknown) the initial attempt fails. The response – that error message you see – is cached so we don’t hit the server too often. Only after a 24-hour timeout is the test retried for real. So all the time before that, you see the “stale” response that was cached.
If, however, you’re still seeing this message after this timeout period, then we may need to investigate to check your system has the necessary functions enabled in PHP/at the host level that enable it to communicate with the outside world in the manner we require.
