Default Update Fail: ERROR: curl_error

We've had a few members getting curl_errors after upgrading to version 3.2. We are still trying to work out what exactly the issue is but it seems to be related to DNS settings. All users with this problem seem to be using HostGator.

Anyway, if you are having this issue, we've put in place a temporary solution.
  1. Upgrade the Datafeedr plugin to version 3.2.3264 (or greater).
  2. Go here: WordPress Admin Area > Tools > Datafeedr > Debug.
  3. Scroll to the bottom of the page.
  4. Under "Factory host", replace "" with "" (without the double quotes) then click [Save].
  5. Then click the [Update Products and Settings] button.

Now your store should successfully update.

If you still receive this error after following these steps, please post in this thread with your error message and web host name.
