I had this problem before and received the following reply on
Statalist from Phil Schumm:

 Stata is not currently able to negotiate an SSL connection. Thus, if
you want to drive an automatic download via HTTPS from Stata, you'll
need to call out to a shell command (e.g., curl or wget) to execute
the actual download, save the result in a temporary file, and then
pick up that file from within Stata."

You can try Andrew Dyck's workaround using wget:
