@Yevgen Lasman I am able to access the bitbucket from the browser. It is hosted on our company server. I am using a Macbook. Could you please guide me where and how can I update the certificates?

Thanks in advance.

You may need to follow the steps described here, in particular set "http.proxyStrictSSL" to "false".

Well I would consider this bad advice -> you shouldn't never ever set this to false... instead try to update the known ca/intermediate certs in the according store... that is used by vs code (not sure where this might be)

Can you access your Bitbucket from a browser? The message means that there is something wrong with the SSL certificate on the Bitbucket side or it uses certificate (or certification chain) which is not recognizable by VS Code.
