One of those many cryptic error messages of a suboptimal tool. Be smart and enter the accession at sra-explorer.info, it will give you a simple download link you can pull via wget directly for the fastq file.

sra-explorer : find SRA and FastQ download URLs in a couple of clicks

SRR17055838 dataset is not available via links from sra-explorer either. It is perhaps too new/restricted access. No links show up for it at ENA (via sra-explorer) and the link for SRA file at NCBI comes up as invalid.

Data Access tab in SRA record lists original fastq file links via AWS/Google. Esra: could try your luck with those.

Had the same issue as OP but this answer worked for me! Really wish they would prioritize maintaining sratoolkit considering how important it has become for many data mining pipelines

One should not do them too bad, after all thousands of users use it successfully each day, and the SRA manages petabyte of data, but if it does not work at a given time one easily gets frustrated.
