This is most likely due to an EXPIRED SSL / CA SECURITY CERTIFICATE going back to May, 2020 and again most recently as September 30, 2021.

See post https://boinc.berkeley.edu/dev/forum_thread.php?id=14437&postid=105804
The previous version stopped working recently because of an expired SSL file
that prevented it from communicating with several BOINC projects,
with the BOINC server, and with Science United.
