Wget cannot validate the CA and thus drops the connection. 

You can:

1/ Discard "https://"; and use plain "http" (unencrypted channel) as 
suggested (don't do this unless you trust the site you are connecting to).

2/ Install "ca-certificates" package and point wget so it can find it 
(wget --ca-certificate=/usr/share/ca-certificates/cacert.org/
cacert.org.crt ...)
