Doing HTTPS client calls is part of the standard test suite, so it should work, else we would not have a green build.

What exactly is he doing ? Is it reproducible ?

Can he try with a fresh downloaded image+vm ?

The VM crashes immediately when using SSL. To me it looks like the cuplrit is the Zodiac plugin, or at least the library it works with.
