Seems to be a openssl related issue. Anyone have any ideas as to what this

Note that the url works in a browser.

With wget:

    # wget -d https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_8.x

    DEBUG output created by Wget 1.19.4 on linux-gnu.

    Reading HSTS entries from /home/user/.wget-hsts
    URI encoding = ‘UTF-8’
    Converted file name 'setup_8.x' (UTF-8) -> 'setup_8.x' (UTF-8)
    --2018-09-02 19:54:06--  https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_8.x
    Could not seed PRNG; consider using --random-file.
    OpenSSL: error:2406F07A:random number generator:RAND_load_file:Not a

    Disabling SSL due to encountered errors.

With curl:

    # curl -v -L https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_8.x
