I never have problems on installing WordPress on my machine. But recently, after installing the latest version and searching on the latest themes, it always ends up with an error stating that there is "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". The error comes with an option to Try Again but clicking on it doesn't fix the problem. What should I do to resolve this?

This error appears due to your server Or your hosts is taking too much time on contacting WordPress API. But this error incurs if you are using your own server or VPS. Else, you should ask the host admin to fix the issue. And then follow the steps below:

1. Ping the api.wordpress.org. The address should be 72.233.56.139.

2. Modify the host file vi /etc/hosts

3. Insert this line: 72.233.56.139 api.wordpress.org

4. Save and then quit.

This can fix your problem.
