$ apt-cache policy w3m
  Installed: 0.5.3-29
  Candidate: 0.5.3-29
  Version table:
 *** 0.5.3-29 500
        500 stretch/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

except the w3m version 0.5.3-29 in my case vs 0.5.3-31 in your case. My
mirror does not have it updated as yet, I checked. But I think that's

$ http_proxy= w3m

But result is the same
SSL error: error:0906D06C:PEM routines:PEM_read_bio:no start line
