Okay. I have my Magento running on two sites. One is my base site www.uncledans.com and the other is my development server.
yesterday I installed updates on my development side and everything went great. however when I am promted to enter my user and PW via the Magento connect portal from the admin site it will not take and it tells me that my user or PW does not exist.
So I created another magento community account and still no connection.
