Error when initialize rosdep

I'm using Raspberry Pi 3 (Raspbian Jessie PIXEL). I'm trying to install ROS based on this tutorial: .

The error I got is:

sudo rosdep init
ERROR: cannot download default sources list from:
Website may be down.

I read a solution on this link, but I don't know what is the proxy server and host of my Raspberry, and I don't know how to find it too? (I'm quite new to both Raspberry and Linux, but I need to install ROS for my project).

And when I browse the link on the error, the website cannot be opened and it says "Your connection is not private".

Can anyone explain a little bit detailed how to find proxy server and port, and what to do next to fix this problem?

Thank you.

Hi All, I had been facing the same issue of ERROR: cannot download default sources list from: Website may be down.

This error is because of your system date & time settings. I corrected my systems date and time settings and rosdep init worked.

Yes, the https negotiations will fail if the date and time are too far apart.
