I've got Wordpress running on WAMP. For some reason, when I check for updates to the core and to my plugins, it tells me that everything is up to date, even though I know that I am one version behind on the core and on three plugins. Why am I not picking up these updates?
I checked file permissions, and they're all good. Tried disabling all plugins. No difference. Also, I tried to re-install my current version of the Wordpress core, and got the following output;
Downloading update from http://wordpress.org/wordpress-3.5.1-no-content.zip… Download failed. Installation Failed
I get no other feedback. Any ideas what is going on? An almost identical version on the live server is showing the updates just fine.
Update: I haven't gotten any answer that solve this problem. Useful information would be what domains or subdomains Wordpress needs to connect to in order to check for and download updates. That way I could debug the connection to those domains.
Update: I still haven't gotten any solutions. I suspect it has something to do with Apache not being able to connect to outside servers, but I have no idea how to solve that.
