Yes. As per the link posted earlier in the thread to possibly help solve this problem: https://superuser.com/questions/1250527/git-clone-stopped-working > wooledg:~$ dpkg -s git | grep ^Depends: > Depends: libc6 (>= 2.16), libcurl3-gnutls (>= 7.16.2), libexpat1 (>= 2.0.1), > libpcre3, zlib1g (>= 1:1.2.0), perl, liberror-perl, git-man (>> 1:2.11.0), > git-man (<< 1:2.11.0-.) > > wooledg:~$ dpkg -s libcurl3-gnutls | grep ^Depends: > Depends: libc6 (>= 2.17), libcomerr2 (>= 1.01), libgnutls30 (>= 3.5.6), > libgssapi-krb5-2 (>= 1.14+dfsg), libidn2-0 (>= 0.6), libk5crypto3 (>= > 1.6.dfsg.2), libkrb5-3 (>= 1.6.dfsg.2), libldap-2.4-2 (>= 2.4.7), libnettle6, > libnghttp2-14 (>= 1.12.0), libpsl5 (>= 0.13.0), librtmp1 (>= > 2.4+20131018.git79459a2-3~), libssh2-1 (>= 1.7.0), zlib1g (>= 1:1.1.4) > > The stretch version of git depends (indirectly) on libgnutls30 and > that's what should be relevant here.

Well as I highlighted in another email above in this thread, when I try to remove it, it wants to rip out over 100 packages and over 500 MiB's of Debian software. I guess it's time to just re-install? Been quite a few years since I've had to reinstall Debian… Thanks for the ideas folks,
