gcloud – Google Cloud SDK throws Reachability Check failed after Command Line Tools update on macOS 12.4

After the software update of Command Line Tools for Xcode to the version 13.4 the gcloud compute ssh command stopped working with the error [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate failed: unable to get local issuer certificate.

I’m not behind proxy or firewall.

What I’ve tried so far: updating google cloud sdk, then reinstalling, then removing and installing goole cloud sdk from scratch a number of times but the gcloud init command fails to complete with the same error. Downgrading command line tools to 13.2 didn’t help. Updating certifi and launching “Install Certificates.command” neither.

Do you have a network proxy you would like to set in gcloud (Y/n)?  n
