When using older IBM Installation Manager versions to search for products or product updates, you may get errors related to repositories under https://www.ibm.com/ not connected.
The IBM Update Site requires the use of the TLS protocol but the TLS protocol is not supported by IBM Installation Manager 220.127.116.11 or older. These older versions require SSL security protocol to connect to a HTTPS server.
IBM Installation Manager versions 1.7.4, 1.8 and newer support the TLS protocol.
To resolve repository connection problems, upgrade the IBM Installation Manager to version 1.7.4, 1.8 or newer.
