Every time I try to update KNIME from the File menu options I get, "'Contacting Software Sites' has encountered a problem.", and the error log shows :
"I/O error while checking for new update sites: www.knime.org"
"I/O error while checking for new update sites: udpate.knime.org"
My Internet connection is a bit flaky, but I'm not seeing anything like this outside of KNIME.
Should I just give up trying it from within the application?
