fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'https'

A common issue with git is when you try clone a project (nodejs in my case) appears this error:

git clone https://github.com/nodejs/node.git
Cloning into 'node'...
fatal: Unable to find remote helper for 'https'

I was reading different solutions, like replace https by git, but the errors is still here:

git clone git://github.com/nodejs/node.git
Cloning into 'node'...
fatal: unable to connect to github.com:
github.com[0:]: errno=Connection timed out

Other recurrent solution is to install openssl libraries for curl (to read https protocol):

sudo apt-get install libcurl4-openssl-dev

Now, you must install git again:

wget https://www.kernel.org/pub/software/scm/git/git-2.12.0.tar.gz
tar xvf git-2.12.0.tar.gz
cd git-2.12.0
make -j8
sudo make install

Enjoy it!
