Most likely just a temporary error. (Try again a little later)

I just tested in 4.1.4 that pinging works without errors for my domain.

If problems continues, which I don't think they will, check if your firewall may be blocking (however, that is unlikely since it would then also block normal website scans)

For completeness, here is the help page URL:
