@byomkesh99 add --no-check-certificate to the end of each wget command in the script that should fix the problem. I'm running the scripts now so I don't yet know if this will fully resolve the problem. Be prepared to respond to some yum prompts though, this script isn't 100% automatic but it beats a manual install.
