Wget TLS fatal alert has been received error

This error has started to appear recently on Fedora 30, when I use ‘wget’:

[john@seneca ~]$ wget --verbose https://www.atlassian.com/software/stash/downloads/binary/atlassian-bitbucket-6.6.0-x64.bin -P /tmp

I have looked at this answer:

I created a .wgetrc, and added the following entry:
CA_CERTIFICATE=/etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/openssl/ca-bundle.trust.crt

Then it complains that it can’t open the cert:
ERROR: Failed to open cert /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/openssl/ca-bundle.trust.crt: (0).

It need to use root login or run command in sudo. it’s a simple to get a file.
have a nice day.

@eeijlar, I’m afraid it isn’t of much help but on my system the command you’ve provided runs without any error and downloads file successfully (edit: as normal user, not as root).

Can it be it’s not an wget / gnutls error but some real problem with connection? Is it the same for another hosts you use wget with?

You can also run wget --debug instead of --verbose and look for additional clues in the debug output.

By the way, it looks like wget successfully loads all system CA certificated, you don’t have to provide them manually.

HI @nightromantic ! how are you…?
It a good run and no problem “wget” in F30. so…Take care and Have a nice day!!

@simmon Please do not jump to the conclusion that root / sudo as the correct answer just because you see an “Access is denied” message.

@eeijlar Can you show us the output of ls -laZR /etc/pki/ca-trust and ls -laZR /usr/share/pki/ca-trust-source?

@simmon: here you go:

The only thing non-standard about /etc/pki, is that I have a self-signed cert included in the certificate authorities file: /etc/pki/ca-trust/extracted/pem/tls-ca-bundle.pem

Check the related packages versions and integrity, check SELinux status, enable time synchronization, update CA trusts, restore SELinux labels:

rpm -q ca-certificates wget
rpm -V ca-certificates wget
getenforce
sudo systemctl --now enable systemd-timesyncd.service
sudo timedatectl set-ntp true
sudo update-ca-trust
sudo restorecon -R -v /usr/share/pki /etc/pki

@vgaetera: here is the output:

[root@seneca ~]# rpm -q ca-certificates wget
ca-certificates-2018.2.26-3.fc30.noarch
wget-1.20.3-1.fc30.x86_64
[root@seneca ~]# rpm -V ca-certificates wget
[root@seneca ~]# getenforce 
Disabled
[root@seneca ~]# systemctl --now enable systemd-timesyncd.service
Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/dbus-org.freedesktop.timesync1.service → /usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-timesyncd.service.
Created symlink /etc/systemd/system/sysinit.target.wants/systemd-timesyncd.service → /usr/lib/systemd/system/systemd-timesyncd.service.
[root@seneca ~]# timedatectl set-ntp true
[root@seneca ~]# update-ca-trust
[root@seneca ~]# restorecon -R -v /usr/share/pki /etc/pki
[root@seneca ~]# exit

I get the same error on wget with those changes.

Why do you have SELinux disabled? I guess that may be why some files have ? in the label field. I’m not sure if restorecon works with SELinux disabled. But then again, if it’s disabled, then the labels don’t matter.

And have you tried restoring the original file?
