This question already has an answer here:

I'm trying to All4coding Offline Maintenance Page using Magento Connect Manager ver. and I'm getting this error: Unknown cipher in list: TLSv1

I found some solutions on here already, however it looks like either my Magento is broken, or they removed the line of code that everyone is talking about..

$this->curlOption(CURLOPT_SSL_CIPHER_LIST, 'TLSv1');

I'm using Hostgator Shared hosting to host the website, if that makes a difference. Does anyone have a solution for this, or what should I try to do?
