Pip3 X509 error during manual install

I’m attempting to install Home Assistant on my C.H.I.P. using 4.4 headless. I’ve successfully followed the Raspberry Pi instructions and installed all dependencies up to the point of using Pip3 to install HomeAssistant.

When I run the “command pip3 install homeassistant” - I get “connection error: [X509] PEM lib (_ssl.c:2736)” and installation fails. I am unable to continue after this no matter how many times I try. All packages are up to date, locales, date and time all set correctly.

Google searches show this to be potentially a proxy error but I’m not using a proxy on my network.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Further digging and much hair pulling later determined this to be an issue with the default ca-certificates package. Performing sudo dpkg-reconfigure ca-certificates and making sure all certs were enabled has fixed this issue.
