#StackBounty: #ssl #https #http #curl #wget curl + wget cannot make https connections

Bounty: 50

My Ubuntu 16.04 system has the following problem:

  • wget and curl hang indefinitely when connecting to a server with HTTPS
  • Both programs work fine with HTTP

Example for curl:

curl -vv https://google.com
* Rebuilt URL to: https://google.com/
*   Trying
* Connected to google.com ( port 443 (#0)
* found 127 certificates in /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
* found 513 certificates in /etc/ssl/certs
* ALPN, offering http/1.1
# … timeout after some time

Things I have tried:

  • update curl and libssl with apt

How can I diagnose this problem? The system is a "server" so I have no GUI available to check if e.g. a browser works with TLS.

The computer is an Intel NUC 6i7kyk. I’ve seen this problem on two different computers of this make, but never on any other system.

Get this bounty!!!
