Vagrant box download issue on macOS

The issue

When upgrading or download a new box on macOS and Vagrant 1.8.7:

$ vagrant up
Bringing machine 'default' up with 'virtualbox' provider...
==> default: Box 'ubuntu/trusty64' could not be found. Attempting to find and install...
    default: Box Provider: virtualbox
    default: Box Version: >= 0
The box 'ubuntu/trusty64' could not be found or
could not be accessed in the remote catalog. If this is a private
box on HashiCorp's Atlas, please verify you're logged in via
`vagrant login`. Also, please double-check the name. The expanded
URL and error message are shown below:

URL: [""]

Vagrant can’t download any new box because its embedded version of curl can’t download anything.

The solution

By removing the curl binary embedded in Vagrant, Vagrant will be forced to use your system’s native curl binary.

sudo rm /opt/vagrant/embedded/bin/curl
