This error will appear if the host allows an outgoing connection but for some reason does not allow the version check by the WishList Activation Center.
The most common reason for this would be firewall blocking access to the WishList Member site.
In rare instances, the reason could be that the WishList Member site may be offline or that the server/hosting environment is experiencing internet downtime at the moment of checking.
Access being denied to the Activation and Update Center can happen if your server/hosting provider is blocking requests to the WishList Member licensing server.
If this is the case, you would need to request the server/hosting provider to configure their firewall to allow access to the Activation and Update Center.
Here is the information that will be required by the server/hosting provider in order to accomplish this request:
wishlistactivation.com – 188.8.131.52
wishlistproducts.com – 184.108.40.206
Port : 80
File Requesting Access : wishlist-member/wpm.php
