Unable to Download Four Plugins: 'cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate' error

I am getting a ‘cURL error 60: SSL certificate problem: self signed certificate’ error when downloading four plugins. I have the base SSL certificate that is attached to the live site activated but still getting the same error.

Does anyone have a high level of understanding on how to override the certificate settings to get these downloaded?

In addition, if it requires running code on the local site shell, can you tell me how to do that? Is it just copying and pasting the code and hitting enter or does it require a run code prior to the code? There was a similar solution in here with that info but when I run the code they suggested, I’m getting another error.

Thank you!
