PlatformIO SSL error while upgrading using vscode

PlatformIO home is not loading. Using a pio terminal with

platformio home

I get the following error:

> Please wait while upgrading PlatformIO...
> Error: HTTPSConnectionPool(host='', port=443): Max retries exceeded with url: /v3/packages?query=type%3A%22tool%22+name%3A%22contrib-piohome%22 (Caused by SSLError(SSLCertVerificationError(1, '[SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed: self signed certificate in certificate chain (_ssl.c:1076)')))

Already tried to uninstall pio and vscode

windows 10
python 3.7.7

Can you go to and look at the certificate chain with your browser?


If that isn’t the chain then probably your antiviurs has replaced the certs.
