Hello, Sorry for the problem with updating your plugins. Were you using an SSL certificate with your site before? If that certificate is expired or invalid, then it may be causing the error you're seeing. You may also want to check about updating WordPress manually. You may also want to try disabling ALL of your plugins and then enable them one-by-one to see if the issue is plugin related. Check out this article for further info: Troubleshooting WordPress plugins. I hope this helps to answer your question, please let us know if you require any further assistance. Regards, Arnel C.
