One possible explanation that occurs to me is that I am connecting to the Internet from behind some kind of firewall. However, that is just wild conjecture. But it is true that I’m not at the usual place from where I have in the past successfully run selfupdate without a problem.
Maybe someone more knowledgeable than I am can say what they think, and let me know if there is a workaround.
