The errors you are reiceiving are from your host provider.

Your site is not able to communicate with WPML servers.

if your host provider is using a firewall you will need to whitelist our IPs

you can also install the plugins manually


to do a manual update please follow these steps:

1. Backup your database – see for example:

2. Deactivate the existing WPML plugin and add-ons.

3. Delete the plugin files – this does not delete your translations. You will simply delete the plugin files from you "wp-content/plugins" folder NOT the database records.

4. Download the updated plugins from our servers and upload them to the plugin directory.

5. Activate the WPML plugin and add-ons.
