Is this important? The data 2015-05-05 is the date of the latest distribution

All HTTPS certificates have a not before date and a not after date. So having the system clock set to something close to the current date/time is a good starting point.

www.rootusers.com has the same issue as linuxcounter.net had (also CloudFlare).

Sorry for comming back to this topic. I just wanted to write that I had the same problems as the guys here.
The reason was that my Raspbian (on RPi 3) couldn't sync date/time properly... (That is very strange, as previous installation worked perfectly. Then I had to reinstall Raspbian and now I've been having problems with time sync).
Installing ntpdate solved the issue with https websites. So, if anyone in the future will have similar problems, setting your time/date properly is first what you should do :).

To force a clock sync
sudo /etc/init.d/ntp stop
sudo ntpd -q-g
sudo /etc/init.d/ntp start

I came to this post because I was having this same problem (Not being able to view/access https sites) on my rpi3. None of the supplied solutions seemed to work for me, so I ended up giving up and resorting to only doing http.

Soon after, I realized my system timezone and locale were wrong. As soon as I fixed these things, it worked perfectly (I hadn't changed anything else). Not 100% sure that this was the problem, but it seemed like it was.

I know this forum is a bit old, but hopefully this helps someone else if they encounter the same thing.

Correctly setting the time and date resolved this issue for me.
