I'm following the tutorial for deploying a contract on the Testnet on an Ubuntu 18.04 VirtualBox VM running on a Windows 10 host. Per the tutorial instructions, I ran the following commands:

wget https://github.com/serokell/tezos-packaging/releases/latest/download/tezos-client
chmod +x tezos-client
alias tezos-client=$PWD/tezos-client

However, when I execute

tezos-client -A rpcalpha.tzbeta.net -P 443 -S config update

I get

Warning: Failed to acquire the protocol version from the node Rpc request failed: - meth: GET - uri: https://rpcalpha.tzbeta.net:443/chains/main/blocks/head/protocols - error: Unable to connect to the node: "No SSL or TLS support compiled into Conduit"

The instructions are rather straight forward, so I'm lost as to why I cannot connect to the Testnet. What do I need to do to connect to the Testnet?


It's a bug in the tezos-packaging repository. We have fixed it in the v7.1-2 release. Can you please try again with v7.1-2 or newer? You can run wget https://github.com/serokell/tezos-packaging/releases/latest/download/tezos-client to overwrite the version you have, it should work because it downloads the latest release (where the bug is fixed).
