Error:Cause: unable to find valid certification path to requested target


I'm getting the following error "Error:Cause: unable to find valid certification path to requested target" when I refresh the Gradle project after I add the below giflib.

plugins { id 'java' id 'idea' id 'eclipse' id 'org.springframework.boot' version '1.4.3.RELEASE' }

group 'com.teamtreehouse' version '1.0-SNAPSHOT'

sourceCompatibility = 1.8

repositories { mavenCentral() }

dependencies { compile 'org.springframework.boot:spring-boot-starter-web'


I have tried different versions and I keep getting the same error. Thank you in advance.
