SSL/HTTPS always failing (multiple browsers - curl included)

Hey everyone,

So I am not sure exactly what happened... but out of the blue, no SSL/HTTPS certificates are able to be downloaded. I am not sure if it is a problem with my locale certificates or what...

I tested in firefox, chromium, and curl, and HTTPS sites that I tried, failed to receive the certificates. 'The site's security certificate has expired!' is the message I get in chromium, and similar in firefox.

curl output:

% curl https://google.com
curl: (60) SSL certificate problem: certificate has expired
More details here: http://curl.haxx.se/docs/sslcerts.html

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.



Some package version info:
% pacman -Q linux ca-certificates curl chromium firefox
linux 3.8.6-1
ca-certificates 20130119-1
curl 7.29.0-2
chromium 26.0.1410.43-3
firefox 20.0-1


I suspect that I need new ca-certs or something, is there any way to wipe ALL of my old ones and refresh with new certs?

Thanks for any help

Ah yes, the date was wrong. After correcting the date, it is working now. Thanks

(Sorry about the bump)
