If you’re installing the Astro CLI on a Mac, you might hit the following error:

➜  ~ curl -sSL https://install.astronomer.io | sudo bash -s             
Password:curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired
More details here: https://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html

curl failed to verify the legitimacy of the server and therefore could not
establish a secure connection to it. To learn more about this situation and
how to fix it, please visit the web page mentioned above.

Resolution

Option 1

Curl from a different endpoint

curl -sSL https://install.gcp0001.us-east4.astronomer.io/ | sudo bash -s

Option 2

Install as root and ignore certificate issues (not recommended)

➜  ~ sudo su
sh-3.2# curl -sSL https://install.astronomer.io -k | bash -s

Option 3

If the password prompt is skipped and the process suspended, bring the process back and attempt again.

➜  ~ curl -sSL https://install.astronomer.io | sudo bash
