On an old Ubuntu 8.04 (cannot upgrade yet) I need to create a Python virtualenv, install some packages and then my software.
I do get certificate errors:
Could not fetch URL https://pypi.python.org/simple/xlrd/: connection error: [Errno 185090050] _ssl.c:340: error:0B084002:x509 certificate routines:X509_load_cert_crl_file:system lib Will skip URL https://pypi.python.org/simple/xlrd/ when looking for download links for xlrd
so I cannot upgrade
setuptools, and have no luck finding how to update just the certificate (the system is old and cannot be update using
The python installed is the latest
python-2.7 (I have to use
virtualenv-2.7 in order not to get the old system versions that I don't want to touch).
How can I install appropriate certificates, or work around this issue?
