I've been using AMD Radeon Settings the past few years without any problems.
I always got a notification about newer updates and I updated my drivers through the application.
I just discovered that it's been a relatively long time since the drivers were updated, I opened the software and when I tried to update I got the message "Unable to connect to the AMD server and check for updates".
I don't have any issues with manually updating the drivers, I know how to do it and I can do it, but I don't understand why I cannot do it automatically through the software.
I did a clean install of the newest drivers and again the software cannot check for updates.
I'm currently with 17.12.1 and I haven't changed anything in my PC.
