Metadata, plugin update problems

For about a week now, whenever I try to use the "Download Metadata" function, it always fails to find anything, with an error like

calibre, version 0.8.38
ERROR: No matches found: <p>Failed to find any books that match your search. Try making the search <b>less specific</b>. For example, use only the author's last name and a single distinctive word from the title.<p>To see the full log, click Show Details.

I think this is a symptom of something else, for whenever I try to update plugins or check for new plugins, I get "
ERROR: Update Check Failed: Unable to reach the MobileRead plugins forum index page.

however, if I paste the url into my browser I have no problem reaching it.

Can anyone advise me how to resolve these errors?

Fix the proxy settings used in internet explorer (calibre automatically uses those settings)
