Hello all.

I have turned my desktop on.

Its connected to the internet.

I want to check for updates and up date addons.

Each time I try both I get an error message saying “error checking for updates”

Or “error checking for addons updates”.

Any way of resolving this.

I have the latest version of nvda.

Kind regards,

Dennis huckle.
