I am using QGIS version 3.4.1. Recently, I cannot install new plugins. I have looked in the plugin setting. It seems that the link is blocked. The address is "https://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/plugins.xml" and it is directed to the "QGIS Python Plugins" website.

In the log Messages I have this warning "WARNING: Failed to load C:/PROGRA~1/QGIS3~1.4/apps/qgis/plugins/grassplugin7.dll (Reason: Cannot load library C".

I have a proxy from my university, disabling the automatic configuration script did not solve the problem.

Also, re-installing QGIS did not help. What else should I look into in order to enable the plugin link?

    Can you access the adress with a browser or with ping? – Andreas Müller Nov 16 '18 at 11:29
  • I added the data regarding the address to the question. – Nitzan Matan Nov 16 '18 at 11:53
  • I have the same problem. Browser access is free. Proxy is not used. Before the upgrade to version 3.4, everything worked. – Илья Пономарев Nov 30 '18 at 12:32

Try with http instead of https: http://plugins.qgis.org/plugins/plugins.xml

I had the same problem and this worked.

You can check your proxy setting via "help - check QGIS version" independently of the plugins access.
