Problems with file migration

I’m in the process of migrating a fairly large old site that has been migrated from Drupal 6 to Drupal 7, and now to Drupal 8.

There are a few issues about getting this done, but I have a grip on most of it. (I’m tossing a lot of functionality; in some cases the migrations are failing, but that’s mostly okay.)
The BIG problem I have is that I cannot for the life of me get the file migrations to work. The Drupal 7 site has both public and private files. I shall leave the private files for the time being. I cannot even get the public files to move over. My first stab was at moving them through http:// so I have set the source to https://wis.community, but the Drupal 8 site never seems to touch the Drupal 7 website, and just fails on every file with an error message similar to the following one.

‘/sites/default/files/images/151659850_3902971153115469_2314013813948011350_o.png’ does not exist

The other website never gets hit. I’ve also tried changing the configuration by editing the d7_file.yml file and re-importing it, but that constantly fails the same way. It appears that, no matter HOW I try to set up the file migration, it doesn’t work.

I’m obviously missing something basic here but I don’t get it.
The migrate_plus.migration.upgrade_d7_file.yml config file looks like this.

      source: pseudo_metatag_entities
destination:

  required: {  }
  optional: {  }

How can I resolve this issue?
