GIMP help system unclear

Hi all.....
I just installed GIMP 2.10.24 on Windows 7, I had an oldish 2.x.y version who claimed not to be able to open 16-bit grayshades without losing res, so I updated. Now, regarding the GIMP user manual, the GIMP official download page says:

Note: GIMP uses online help by default. If you want to use this local help offline, you will need to change GIMP's help settings.

One gets the impression that, should one be content to use the online help, one need do nothing. Well, one is wrong: anywhere in the program I get a grey box with this:

Parse error in 'https://docs.gimp.org/2.10/en/gimp-help.xml': GET request failed: WinHttp error: SECURE_FAILURE

I tried putting https://docs.gimp.org/2.10/en/ directly in my browser bar, and sure enough it's there, so it looks like a silly problem, some kind of typo or other.

So, could please have a look, and find out? Thank you all in any case for a magnificent program.
