      Description

      Executing wget for SSL connections fails with the issue described in the accepted answer in the following page: https://askubuntu.com/questions/338869/error-while-downloading-https-files-using-wget

      Steps to Reproduce

      1. SSH into any GDP environment.
      2. Navigate into a directory where any changes that occur would not affect the system. For example: Home directory of user: /home/root
      3. Try to download any file stored on a server which requires SSL connections for requests. We will try downloading a tarball of cpython(you are free to try any other URL, but make sure it is a SSL encrypted connection). Execute the following command.
        wget https://github.com/python/cpython/archive/v3.5.6.zip

      Error Message

      "Connecting to github.com (192.30.253.112:443)
      wget: error getting response: No such file or directory"

      Temporary Resolution

      This was temporarily resolved by re-compiling wget on GDP together with the tag 

      --with-ssl
      

      as described here: https://help.directadmin.com/item.php?id=119

      • This resolution can only be utilized under the environment conditions stated for this issue. Please check the environment info for more details.

      Required:

      This is not a perfect solution. Should be rectified in the yocto build.
