The warning message implies that the "allow_url_fopen" option is not enabled on the server. Please Edit the php.ini file from CPanel->MultiPHP INI editor->Editor Mode; add the following options and save the settings.

allow_url_fopen = ON

allow_url_include = ON

Alternatively, I suggest that you go to CPanel->MultiPHP manager to change the PHP version.
