I am new to coding with QGIS.

However, when trying to geocode with MMQGIS I am confronted with:

Failure connecting to API: urlopen error [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed: unable to get local issuer certificate (_ssl.c:1056)>.

I have tried redownloading python, updating qgis, making sure I hit "Install Certificates.command", all to no avail. I have seen MMQGIS Geocode is failing in QGIS 3, but the answers there are having no effect on my situation. Running QGIS 3.10, but have tried on 3.6 as well.

I have had the exact same problem for months and did the same things that you did. However, today, I discovered that there is a new version of MMQGIS out. I just updated the plugin and have been able to successfully geocode the addresses I have.
