Well temp fix is for the test server and I am not about to keep it online all the time. Primary server with Enterprise license is running fine and no vulnerabilities. 

So solution is to reinstall cURL? I am assuming that it is already installed. 

My temporary solution was to edit yum.conf with line sslverify=false

Yep. And it seemed even be that you can define whatever to that row. I tested by lefting intentionally typo cert and it still same gave error like it won't even check cert path. 

Hi

I have faced that same situation while I was deploying test server for our lab. Downloaded the cert and added that row but still gives error.
