git clone error: unable to access URL, Problem with the SSL CA cert

I was getting the error Problem with the SSL CA cert while cloning a git repository.

[root@vmforpbs ~]# git clone https://github.com/adaptivecomputing/torque.git
Cloning into 'torque'...
fatal: unable to access 'https://github.com/adaptivecomputing/torque.git/': Problem with the SSL CA cert (path? acc ess rights?)

Problem with the SSL CA cert

The error is because the standard root CAs weren’t installed, meaning that git couldn’t verify the SSL certificates of HTTPS sites.

The solution to fix the issue which worked for me was to install ca-certificates bundle:

[root@vmforpbs ~]# yum install -y ca-certificates

If the ca-certificates bundle is already installed and still didn’t work, follow the below:

[root@vmforpbs ~]# update-ca-trust force-enable
