    Chrome "Not Secure" Warning Different Win10/Linux Mint

    I regularly visit the VirtualRailFan web site with Google Chrome on a Win10 PC and have no issues with Chrome warning me that the site is Not Secure. But when I visit the site on Google Chrome on a Linux Mint (18.3) I get the warning the the site is not secure and it won't autofill my password. The details of the site certificate are the exact same. I've deleted the cache but no joy. I can use Firefox on the Linux PC and the site is fine but Chrome, Chromium, and Edge on the Linux PC complain. BTW, all versions of Chrome are the same.
    Anyone have any thoughts?

    Update: Did the same thing on another PC with both Win10 and Linux Mint (18.3) installed and the result is exactly the same. Going to https:\\ on Google Chrome on Win10 is fine but not on Linux Mint.
    If anyone had any thoughts about why Google Chrome would deem a security certificate on one OS as OK and same certificate on another OS as invalid I'd love to understand it. It must have something to do with the differences between Win10 and Linux Mint.

    Update: Installing Linux Mint 20.1 solved the problem. I'm assuming the new version updated the Security Certificates that Chrome uses.
