When I run package-install in windows with Emacs 24.5.1 (i686-pc-mingw32) of 2015-04-11 on LEG570 I got error error in process filter: could not create connection to marmalade-repo.org:433

According to the web site of marmalade, that happens because they changed http to https and to avoid the error I followed the instruction.

But by M-x package-refresh-contents I got the same error error in process filter: could not create connection to marmalade-repo.org:433. What can I do to avoid the error?

  • Are you running Eli's GnuTLS build of Emacs on Windows? – stsquad Nov 8 '17 at 16:07
  • I don't know what is Eli's GnuTLS build, where can I check if I'm using it? – ironsand Nov 9 '17 at 20:38
  • It's literally the first line of the "Installing with Windows" section you linked to. I'm not familiar with the Windows build myself but given it mentions it and GnuTLS is responsible for handling https it would seem on Windows having a build with GnuTLS enabled is important. You can test your current emacs with Meta-: (gnutls-available-p) – stsquad Nov 10 '17 at 10:38
