    It normally happened in old WordPress Version.

    https://wordpress.org/support/topic/cant-upgrade-website-ssl-certificate-problem/ gives a good solution to solve this problem.

    But you can also fis it by adding some code in your functions.php in your theme folder. Adding some code in the end of functions.php file:

    add_action('http_request_args', 'jkudish_http_request_args', 10, 2);
    function jkudish_http_request_args($args, $url) {
    $args['sslverify'] = false;
    return $args;
    }

    All will be OK now.
