SSL Related Errors Testing Fresh Python 3.6.6 Installation

I am trying to compile from source Python 3.6.6 on my Debian buster linode. The config && make altinstall works, but running python3.6 -m test fails with SSL certificate related errors.

The complete description is on Stackoverflow -

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated!

This error in the tests was fixed in 3.6.7. You really should be running 3.6.12, though, if you're building from source, or even something newer.
