Hey, I'm glad this solved your issue!
| | | Have you checked the time on the
| | | laptop being correct and not set
| | | to e.g. 1970-01-01 01:29? In the
| | | past, I have found ssl errors are
| | | caused by the time being off on my
| | | laptop, as in the case of a flat
| | | cmos battery.
| | BTW - my clock and date are fine,
| | the reason it works on some systems
| | has to do with the SSL library being
| | used, whether openSSL or libreSSL.
| | And as I said, similar happened to
| | R itself for a very short time. I
| | can't find the references to the
| | email exchange, but Simon Urbanek
| | gave a very nice explanation of why
| | this was happening. I also wonder
| | whether it really is desirable to
| | ignore an expired Cert in the Cert
| | search path. Not particularly
| | knowledgeable on this, but my
| | offhand feeling is that could lead
| | to problems.
| | Thanks again for the solution!

| Found it. On June 9, in the
| R-developers mail-list, a chain under
| the topic "SSL certificate issues".
Perhaps it's this[*] one. OpenSSL is
really crusty and simply a mistake, thus
I have heard, I hope LibreSSL or
something else can replace it at some
point, not just in MacOS and OpenBSD ...
