Hi Everyone/Daniel,

$ lsb_release -a
Distributor ID: Ubuntu
Description: Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS
Release: 20.04
Codename: focal

$ command -v wget

$ wget -O cacert.pem ''

To connect to insecurely, use `--no-check-certificate'.

Normally this is a local error. But given this is Ubuntu's wget and
certificate store it may be a bigger problem.
