Https repository blocking by PKIX path

Dear Team,

We are facing below certificate issue. PKIX path building failed: unable to find valid certification path to requested target

We have tried below solution

  2. Selecting the SSL configuration tab of the repository. The SSL tab shows the remote certificate. Examine it closely. If you want to trust the cert, check “Use Nexus SSL trust store” and the “Add to Trust Store” button.

But we are not to able fix it.

Please share us an alternative solution

Thanks for the information. We are still facing same issue.
Just like what you have sent, our servers are connected to internet over a proxy server.
Could you please let us know if there is anything other way around.
