Thanks for sharing your problem here.

I think that you have an issue with the version of urllib3 or requests package installed on your system please update them to the latest version and try again, use these commands:

sudo -H pip install -U requests
sudo -H pip install -U urllib3

Please let us know if this does not solve your issue.

Hope this helps, with best of luck from DO community :)
