I was following instructions on https://assets.tqtezos.com/docs/setup/1-tezos-client/ to install on MacOS, but following command:

tezos-client --endpoint https://rpcalpha.tzbeta.net config update is constantly giving following error:

  Failed to acquire the protocol version from the node
  The request has timed out

How to proceed?

You need to pass a public node endpoint. You can get one here: https://tezostaquito.io/docs/rpc_nodes For instance: tezos-client --endpoint https://mainnet.api.tez.ie config update
