Currently (5 Aug 2022 @12:53pm) There is a network outage from a Data Centre in Chicago which hosts all Wordpress.org sites and API’s etc.
Trying to create a Wordpress site will result in error:
Error: RuntimeException: Couldn’t fetch response from https://api.wordpress.org/core/version-check/1.7/?locale=en_US (HTTP code 503). Error: cmd exited with errors
to see when the issue will be resolved.
