I'm trying to make my first web scraper and keep getting errors for https URLs but not http.
I am running Python 2.7.9 on RPi2 with Raspbian Jessie. I am also SSHing into the Pi on my laptop. All of this is being done at my home network.
I do not get these errors when running the code below on my laptop. Only when running it on RPi2.
I tried to find some solutions online and I found some people talking about issues with the proxy, but not sure if it applies here.
