Adding a -k option to each of the curl statments inside the installation shell script

Hi Team,

All the curl statements inside the installation script can have a '-k' option to avoid any certificate errors.


$ curl -fsS
curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: unable to get local issuer certificate
More details here:

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.
curl -kfsS

That's a bad idea as you want to fix your certificate issue.

Having a certificate error is the sign of something wrong on your setup.

Sometimes at a organization level there are firewall setups, which are difficult to bypass while trying to configure rclone at a local project level.

I'm not following as you are saying your org breaks SSL certificates chains and you want to ignore that? Do you mean a proxy? As a firewall is at a different layer.

We won't be doing that by default as it breaks the assurance chain for installing rclone. It would leave vulnerable to a man in the middle attack to install - let's say - malware on your computer.
