The wget error we are talking about today can happen for several reasons. It may be that wget does not support https downloads properly due to the security protocol options, or for certificate errors, or more.

Usually the wget command is used to download files from the internet through the terminal.


Most of the time you run into the error when wget doesn't support downloads via https. In this case you need to specify the protocol used by the server (most often TLSv1 or TLSv2).

With the following command we instruct wget on the protocol to use and solve the problem.

wget --secure-protocol=TLSv1
