"no variable stars" in M101 image

I have just uploaded two images (B and V) of the SN in M 101.  Both plate solved without problem.  On both images the target has a SNR >200.  The FOV is 23 arcmin square.  The target shows clearly in both images.

When I try to load the VXS or GCVS  catalogs I get "No variable stars found."

When I try to load the AAVSO comps I get:  "No AAVSO sequence available. The AAVSO service might be unavailable.
The request was aborted: Could not create SSL/TLS secure channel."

I get the same problem with either images.

It's 3:47pm Pacific time.  I'm sharing one of the images with MZK.
