So I am running Windows 10, recently installed Vortex, downloaded and installed a mod list, then fixed dependencies, only to realize the masterlist could not be updated. Vortex seems not to be able to communicate with Github. Here is the error I am getting:
Error: Git operation failed. Details: -1; failed to send request: A connection with the server could not be established
: libgit2 error

I have looked this issue up, including a couple of threads on this site, and nothing seems to address exactly what is going on here.
Here is what I have done so far:
1. Verified the Mod staging folder was correct in settings
2. Re-installed Vortex, made sure my vpn and virus software were both OFF.
2. Downloaded the masterlist from github for skyrimse and put it in the masterlist folder myself.
None of those helped, and when I click "Reset Masterlist" in the plugins page, it simply cannot create a new yaml file. I watch the folder and briefly see a .git folder appear, then disappear, then the "Failed to reset Masterlist" messages appear in Vortex.
I don't know why it cannot connect. I can go to github, I did so to download the masterlist.yaml from there. However I'm not very familiar with it so not sure what I might be missing.
I also tried to install and run LOOT, but I guess I don't get that program because I can't get it to do anything at all even though I point it to where my game is installed.
Any ideas would be appreciated!
