Have you taken a look at your plugin configuration? See the attached image. I've found that using Amazon servers seems to work best for me though I do toggle the country between Canada and US. If you do a large number of metadata updates rapidly, I've found that Amazon will throttle your connection causing timeouts before getting usable metadata.

Calibre 5.11 has v1.2.15 for the Amazon metadata download plugin but that plugin ships with calibre, it is not a third party plugin.
