sudo apt-get update on my AWS EC2 Ubuntu 18.04.01 LTS instance fails because my Certificate verification failed: The certificate is NOT trusted. The certificate issuer is unknown when trying to access the deb.nodesource.com/node_10.x bionic Release
Here is the result after running
sudo apt-get update

It seems like my current installation of Node.js is causing the problem.
I've tried installing and updating
etc/ssl/certs, however, this did not help. I'm not exactly sure how to proceed from here to resolve this issue.
I'm not looking for a quick workaround that would compromise the security of the server.
Thanks in advance!
