First of all, buildroot.uclibc.org is the legacy name - Nowadays we have
buildroot.{org,net}, so please use http://buildroot.org instead.

Secondly, the reason why you get this error is that the uClibc
developers have recently added HSTS for *.uclibc.org (which forces
https:// access), and the certificate we use for Buildroot doesn't list
the legacy buildroot.uclibc.org address.

I'll try to get that fixed, but please move to the official address
instead, which we've had for ~5 years or so by now.
