minecraft – unable to authenticate when playing online – linux

June 30, 2015

linux. i just installed mate ubuntu 15.10 alpha. went to play on my minecraft server after installing openjdk 8.

whenever i clicked on the server and selected join it threw an error something along the lines of ‘failed to login the authentication are currently down for maintenance’. the mojang status page maintained that everything was fine so what was the problem? SSL certificates were the problem. they were broken or non-existent. the fix…as root

update-ca-certificates -f

not sure if this is just a problem with this alpha build but that fixed it for me.
