IDE setup using vagrant not working?

I wanted setup an IDE environment for openhab, and I opted for the vagrant approach (simply because it looked to be the quickest route => least amount of steps in the instructions).

When I get to the step of ‘vagrant up’. however, it fails with the following message:

An error occurred while downloading the remote file. The error
message, if any, is reproduced below. Please fix this error and try

SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired
More details here:

curl performs SSL certificate verification by default, using a “bundle”
of Certificate Authority (CA) public keys (CA certs). If the default
bundle file isn’t adequate, you can specify an alternate file
using the --cacert option.
If this HTTPS server uses a certificate signed by a CA represented in
the bundle, the certificate verification probably failed due to a
problem with the certificate (it might be expired, or the name might
not match the domain name in the URL).
If you’d like to turn off curl’s verification of the certificate, use
the -k (or --insecure) option.

Is this a known problem?

I followed the link to more information at the bottom of the page, but it looks like not much is happening there. Is the vagrant way not maintained and/or recommended?

What is the “preferred” way of setting up the IDE for openhab?

Hi - did you get around this ? Its still reporting the same error


Looks like the Vagrantfile (and documentation) on this should be updated.

For now you could add this to the Vagrantfile you get after the initial ‘vagrant up’:

config.vm.box_download_insecure = true

If you run ‘vagrant up’ again it should install the VM. No idea if the environment in the VM is still working however…
