Cannot install Blinkt s/w - We can't connect to the Internet, check your network!

I keep getting the error “We can’t connect to the Internet, check your network!” when I run the Blinkt installed on a Pi3 with latest s/w.

The Pi is definitely connected to wired and wireless connection

I have it running on a zero which I installed a couple of weeks ago

May be a localised connectivity problem with the Python Package Index, it seems to have those from time to time. Can you navigate to in your Raspberry Pi browser?

yes can do that and can down load the .z file

Might be worth trying:

sudo pip install blinkt

Which will get you the library, at least, then examples are here:

Yes that worked fine all up and running now thanks
