while wget (and curl) has been updated, apparently trying to fix a bug or attack vector, several times in the last 6 weeks or so. So this would appear to be a busybox problem from my point of view? Or possibly a broken link as I get that same pair of errors regardless of the machine on my home net that I initiate this query from: wget -S --spider https://wiki.debian.org And this is the response I get from here in WV,USA: gene@coyote:~/Documents$ wget -S --spider https://wiki.debian.org Spider mode enabled.
