That error is generally produced when WordPress is trying to connect to an update server but failed.  This could be a simple intermittent connectivity issue and usually will clear itself up in a bit.   So wait and try again.

 

If the error persists it could be your server hiccuping and you'll have to contact GoDaddy Support and have them investigate why WordPress cannot connect.
