WordPress Trouble: No plugins match your request

UPDATE: From the WordPress team: “This is a problem with api.wordpress.org. We’re working on it and should have it resolved momentarily.”

UPDATE 2: Issue has been fixed! I can now search plugins from the backend.

Woops! It looks like something broke with the core WordPress plugin search feature that is powered by WordPress.org.

One minute I was searching and installing plugins like normal and the next minute I was greeted with a confusing message:

“No plugins match your request.”

I was sure the plugin still exists so I went to WordPress.org to verify and sure enough it was there.

A few other users are actively reporting this problem at the WordPress.org forums. Check there to see what I and others are currently saying about it.

This is breaking news so I’m doing a quick post to help anyone else who might be searching Google for a solution. I’ll post an update once I know of one myself but I think it’s safe to say their search is broken for now!
