Hello :)

Please check your /etc/resolv.conf file to ensure valid resolvers are used. You can use the following public resolvers if your the existing ones are not valid:

8.8.8.8
8.8.4.4

You should then consult with your data center or network provider if you are still unable to make external connections to httpupdate.cpanel.net.

Thank you.
