Sselph Scraper Certificate has not yet been activated?

  • Hi all,

    I'm using a Raspberry Pi 3 with Retropie 4.0.2 img on it. Everything is running great, but I decided to try Sselph Scraper as I've heard so much about it.

    The first tutorial I followed was .

    That didn't seem to work as anytime I goto scrape it flashes for a second then I get this:

    ![Scraper image](0_1475867585063_Scraper.jpg

    ES is not running at the time.

    I then tried to manually get the scraper via the command line:


    It fails to get it and I get this as output:

    pi@retropie:~ $ wget
    --2016-05-28 15:37:49--

    ****Connecting to (||:443... connected.
    ERROR: The certificate of ‘’ is not trusted.
    ERROR: The certificate of ‘’ is not yet activated.
    The certificate has not yet been activated****

    Any ideas where I am going wrong here? I'd really love to be able to use this awesome scraper.

    EDIT: This was indeed a Date & Time issue with my Pi. Finally got it sorted thanks to Reddit user suprjami.
    Working great now.

    Does your RPI have the wrong date or time ? Check the output from date - RPI should set date when connecting to the network.

    My sincere apologies about the formatting BuZz. I did read that first and had full intentions of following it, but in my haste to post totally forgot about it. Again, my apologies!

    I think you're correct with the date and time thing. I noticed this before and tried to fix it, and with that too now, I am having issues.

    I've googled and followed a ton of ways to try and get the time to sync, but no dice.
    I suppose that should be a separate thread, and if that is what you want, just let me know. I'm totally at a loss as to whats going on with this Pi. I've just installed the image again and no luck changing the date, OR using the scraper.

    For the date/time I've tried:

    Setting the timezone in raspi-config (didn't stick after reboot)

    Tried these to no avail:

    And a few others I don't remember the URL's.
