I think this will happen if you don't have OpenSSL installed. Did you see the list of packages to install with apt-get when you first run the install script?

Please go ahead and install those packages, then delete the old installation folder (probably called yt-x86_64 or something similar) and rerun the install script.

Hello everyone,

I have just learned about yt and I'd like to try it out.
 I tried to install it using the shell script but i got the following error:
I am using Ubuntu 14.04 64 bit.

I have also attached the last lines from the log file.

Does anyone knows how can this error be fixed?

Thank you
