    initial v1  
    1  api.wordpress.org does not have an AAAA RR in the DNS. Therefore, it is not reachable over IPv6. This is a problem for hosts that are IPv6-only. As a result, the admin dashboard contains multiple errors message and (automatic) updates seem to be broken. This decreases the confidence in WordPress and can lead to security problems.

    33IPv6-only hosts are becoming more important as IPv4 address depletion continues and the cost of IPv4 addresses increases. Example of scenarios where IPv6-only hosts are deployed today are public web hosting, in particular with load balancers or other address translators that connect IPv6-only networks to the IPv4 Internet, and internal networks that already IPv6-only. IPv6-only networks lower the operational costs and complexity for networks that do not need IPv4 and some larger organizations have even run out of RFC 1918 address space.
