yea, it was a typo - space in a file name is a no-no :)

Thank you for the details proper certification set up... decided to pull down the tar
package file for now so I can get on with build. Will definitely circle back to setting
up proper certification at some point. The no-check-certificate is also nice to have

Thanks again to all for the help,
