Topic: package url | SSL certificate problem (expired) error

stefanvd priority asked 1 year ago


I have 2 questions:

1. At it says:npm i git+

However, the package sits at:

Which is right? (essential vs advanced)

2. Do you have any idea why I get this SSL certificate problem (expired) error? (see attachment). Git is up-to-date and the SSH connection with gitlab working properly.

Yesterday I was successful connected to, resulting in the success message Welcome to GitLab, username!.

At this moment, while doing exactly the same, I can't connect: Permission denied (publickey,gssapi-keyex,gssapi-with-mic).

Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

check out this topic:

If it doesn't help, check if your certificate haven't expired.

My node and npm are at the latest versions. Still no solution for me, what do you mean by 'check if your certificate haven't expired'?

My 1st question, what would be the correct command?

stefanvd priority commented 1 year ago

I am building locally. By the way, I got mdb cli working, but here I can only select the free versions.

I have been trying to figure out things for many many hours now, without any success. I can leave the npm option behind if you help me with my other ticket:

Update, when I follow these instructions:

the error is not present and the npm install is successful - which is good however not a sustainable workaround for security reasons I think.

Answer to the first question: correct command depends on package you bought. If you have PRO Advanced run npm i git+, and if you have PRO Essential use npm i git+

I meant to check if your access token haven't expired, but that's not the case if you managed to install the package this way.

What version of git do you use?

Check this stackoferflow topic. Some users faced the same issue and it seems like it could be fixed by updating git in many cases.

Hi, thanks for confirming the right command - my git version is I will try to update it now and also look at your stackoverflow-suggestion, thanks for your support.

Could you please have a look at the CLI open ticket if you have some time? I prefer to work with CLI, would be wonderful. Thanks!

After updating Git to v2.38.1, the issue was solved. Many thanks for the suggestion!
