If I read this correctly, Git is not able to verify GitHub's TLS 
certificate for some reason.  I will take a stab in the dark and guess 
that a needed root CA certificate is missing.

While this does not help you, the root of this latter problem seems to 
be that GitHub has decided to deliberately break compatibility with one 
of Git's standard features using "security" as an excuse.  This is, of 
course, ridiculous for public repositories, since public repositories 
are, well, public.
