I was attempting to check that my extensions were all up to date. After clicking re-check all versions it doesn't show what ones are. Usually some are green and others are red I think. If I click on one extension for details it says it failed to get current version info. For the heck of it I made a fake board and it does the same. Is it some kind of bug?
Same here!.. Again!!.
I had the same problem with phpBB3 v.3.2.8, and tanks to some investigations and the precious help of some forum members here the problem turned out to be the obsolete user-agent attached by my hosting provider (AlterVista) to the requests coming from my board which was refused by the phpbb servers.
Link here to that old thread: Does the Extension Manager "re-check all versions" still work?
So in that period I asked AlterVista to update their user-agent and after some time they did it, and finally the "re-check all versions" function started to work again, and continued to work well for several days.
Then I updated also the phpBB3 to v. 3.3.0 and had no problems, everything was still working perfectly.
But a few days ago the "re-check all versions" function stopped working again.
So I asked AlterVista if for some reasons they restored back the obsolete user-agent, but they didn't.
I therefore deduce that this time the problem comes from the phpbb.com servers.
I don't think it's a phpBB3 bug since it worked perfectly for several days.
