Windows 10 - Search packages: Cannot see any package

I have installed for the first time Atom on my new Windows company PC. It is a Windows 10 pro.

I am having problems installing additional packages. At the beginning I was receiving the message “unable to get local issuer certificate” for every search string.

After that I did the following:

  • created file $HOME/.atom/.apmrc with the line “strict-ssl=false”
  • unchecked “Use Proxy Settings When Calling APM” in the “Core” section of the Settings window

Now the error message does not appear. But every search finds nothing.

What should I do so that I am able to locate packages?
