I get that when I'm not connected to the internet and sometimes when (I guess) the server is down

The client will try to fetch the master file if it thinks something is wrong elsewhere. The most common causes are if the server is totally down (which it's not at the moment) or if you are trying to connect to the wrong url.

Make sure you're attached to http://setiathome.berkeley.edu and not one of the older urls. If you're attached to one of the older ones, you'll have to detach and attach to this one.

If you post a few lines of the log before and after where the error appears, it should help with tracking down the exact cause.

I had the same problem just detach and attach to the project again.
Seems the changed the server URL but forget to mention to the users...
