Recently I have got an error message when I tried to update rvm in an old ubuntu 12.04 server,

rvm curl: (35) error:1407742E:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:tlsv1 alert protocol version
OpenSSL: error:1407742E:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:tlsv1 alert protocol version

After some digging on google, I have found that this error is due to using the old version of OpenSSL libraries.

How to fix error:1407742E:SSL  ?

To fix this error in ubuntu just update the OpenSSL and related libraries.

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install libssl-dev curl wget openssl
