in reply to CPAN: Cannont install LWP::Protocol::https::Socket

Your wget test fails because you are sending an HTTP request to an HTTPS server. If you send an HTTPS request instead you may have more success.

It might also be significant whether you are attempting to connect over IPv4 or IPv6.

    This is resolved. Thank you! Bee

      If your box is running IPv4 and not IPv6 and you then attempt to connect from it over IPv6, that is when you see errors like "Network is unreachable". That and the fact that www.apache.org has an IPv6 address (as well as IPv4) suggests that this could be a possible cause of the test failure.

        This is resolved
        Thank you
      If you have indeed resolved this, you could help matters for us all by editing the OP to:
      • Update the title - to include the string 'RESOLVED' or similar and possibly ...
      • Identify the resolution
