How do I resolve an SSL connection error when fetching the metrics agent installer script?
I’m following the instructions from this page:
However, the curl command appears to do nothing. Indeed, when I omit the pipe to ‘sh’, there’s still no output and no file saved locally. Even with the –verbose flag, I see nothing.
At least wget gives some useful errors:
OpenSSL: error:1407742E:SSL routines:SSL23GETSERVER_HELLO:tlsv1 alert protocol version
Unable to establish SSL connection.
So, it’s something to do with TLS. Do I need to upgrade the OS on my droplet? It’s pretty old: Ubuntu 12.04
