Yeah the problem is you server can not connect to PayPal, or more accurately, PayPal is refusing the connection.
Regardless of what the plugin shows, you need to update curl to 7.29+ (just install the latest version) and I’d also recommend updating OpenSSL. The reason the CURL notice is in red is it’s an important update, it also sates to make sure you are running OpenSSL 1.0.1 OR X OR Y, which I’m guessing your are not, updating OpenSSL meets that criteria.
If you are unsure on how to update those you can contact your host and have them do it for you.
So they won’t update the server, or move you to another server that has been updated?
No, it’s a handshake failure, as in the connection is trying to negotiate which TLS version to use and your server and PayPal don’t agree on the correct protocol.
