I am not able to open any https URLs using wget or curl:
$ wget https://www.python.org --2015-04-27 17:17:33-- https://www.python.org/ Resolving www.python.org (www.python.org)... 220.127.116.11 Connecting to www.python.org (www.python.org)|18.104.22.168|:443... connected. ERROR: cannot verify www.python.org's certificate, issued by "/C=US/O=DigiCert Inc/OU=www.digicert.com/CN=DigiCert SHA2 Extended Validation Server CA": Unable to locally verify the issuer's authority. To connect to www.python.org insecurely, use '--no-check-certificate'. $ curl https://www.python.org curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate More details here: http://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html curl performs SSL certificate verification by default, using a "bundle" of Certificate Authority (CA) public keys (CA certs). If the default bundle file isn't adequate, you can specify an alternate file using the --cacert option. If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a problem with the certificate (it might be expired, or the name might not match the domain name in the URL). If you'd like to turn off curl's verification of the certificate, use the -k (or --insecure) option.
This is using wget 1.12 and curl 7.30.0 on CentOS 5.5. It sounds like something is wrong with my local certificate store, but I have no idea how to proceed from here. Any ideas?
Update: After upgrading the openssl package from 0.9.8e-12.el5_4.6 to 0.9.8e-33.el5_11, there is now a different error:
