      Description

      The installation instructions list the following command for Debian and Ubuntu installation:

      sudo apt install -y -V lsb-release wget
      

      However, on a base Debian system configured to not install recommended packages, that results in wget producing the following error:

      root@buster:~# wget https://apache.bintray.com/arrow/$(lsb_release --id --short | tr 'A-Z' 'a-z')/apache-arrow-archive-keyring-latest-$(lsb_release --codename --short).deb
      --2020-05-26 18:35:52--  https://apache.bintray.com/arrow/debian/apache-arrow-archive-keyring-latest-buster.deb
      Resolving apache.bintray.com (apache.bintray.com)... 52.38.12.101, 50.112.155.255
      Connecting to apache.bintray.com (apache.bintray.com)|52.38.12.101|:443... connected.
      ERROR: The certificate of 'apache.bintray.com' is not trusted.
      ERROR: The certificate of 'apache.bintray.com' doesn't have a known issuer.
      

      It is necessary to have the ca-certificates package installed for wget to be able to verify the issuer and server certificate. The wget package recommends, but does not depend on, ca-certificates, so the documentation should include it in the supplied command line.

      The command should be updated to:

      sudo apt install -y -V lsb-release wget ca-certificates
