How to fix “Download failed. A valid URL was not provided.”?

If you get error message Download failed. A valid URL was not provided. during plugin installation then It sounds like you are trying to install plugin using TGM Plugin Activation from child theme. In this case please:

  • Temporary switch your theme to parent theme (WP Dashboard -> Appearance -> Themes) and then install recommended/required plugins.
  • Switch back to your child theme and then activate these plugins again.

Installation and activiation should work fine this way.
