Wondering what to do to get wget working in this situation. I know how to download it fine with curl, or from the browser, but I'd like to know how to do it with wget in this situation.

    It isn't issue in wget, it is issue in missing ssl libraries, for ssl to work. – fugitive Nov 3 '18 at 20:51

    Specifying TLSv1 (1.0) won't help; since early this year github requires TLS 1.2, see stackoverflow.com/questions/48938385 and links there. If your software supports 1.2 it should have used it automatically, so you probably need newer software. Or download to another machine and then transfer. – dave_thompson_085 Nov 4 '18 at 5:28
