@thehotbrain : I’m currently experiencing the issue with a site hosted on Network Solutions. I’ve had the same experience as you, ACF Pro on other hosts has worked flawlessly, but on Network Solutions I get the ‘Could not connect to the update server error’ as well. Have you had any luck with NetSol tech support? My experience has been lackluster.
