I think I must use ssl certification, but I do not knwo howto do this.

How can I introduce this --no-check-certificate in download or downloadmanager.
I'm not sure which specific program you're using here. Download or
downloadmanager are pretty generic terms, and an apt-cache search on
"download" brings up an awful lot of packages. Even narrowing the search
with grep still lists quite a few packages. However, if you know the
program you are using is a graphical front-end to wget, you can
create/edit the configuration file ~/.wgetrc to include the line,
"check-certificate = off", and it will tell wget to bypass validity
checking for ssl certs. I just tried it with the Gnome gwget program and
was able to download the ALM file without a hitch.
