Hello @4a0f1df7c0e844d98a7d16f88304b3

As already mentioned this is most likely a Firewall issue. You can follow the steps that were already listed.

I’ll also recommend running the traceroute command which Bobby suggested.

In the meantime, you can attempt the manual download if this needs to be completed with priority.

This seems like a firewall issue. Do you have a Cloud Firewall blocking port 443 for outbound connections or have you blocked that on the firewall of your Droplet?

I’m assuming you’re running this command from a droplet?

Is it behind a firewall that restricts outbound access?
