update in buster is failing with redirection from https to 'http://armbian.tnahosting.net/apt/dists/buster/Release' is forbidden


Recommended Posts

I've tried without and with --no-allow-insecure-repositories and --allow-unauthenticated

Cert issue on the remote?

But IMO connecting via HTTPS is preferred, while in this case a redirection to plain HTTP should simply not be done? The targets are available via HTTPS as well (https://armbian.systemonachip.net/apt/, https://armbian.tnahosting.net/apt/ etc.), some mirrors even enforce it (http://imola.armbian.com/), so wouldn't it be best to redirect without scheme to preserve HTTP or HTTPS depending on the initial client connection?

Lol i got a lot of feedback about https being an undesirable default.    Major reason being those on small connections heavilly rely on caching proxies to make life better.

 

And yes persisting protocol based on request would be ideal.  How are you at python?

Same script, one for http mirrors (port 80) and one for https mirrors (port 443).

I would say same script, but changing the list to not include scheme, and then prepend scheme of client request to target mirror: https://github.com/armbian/dl-router/blob/master/app/mirrors.yaml

I also see that mirrors.netix.net entry is with HTTP, but it has forced redirect to HTTPS, at least after receiving the HSTS header once.

 

I'm learning Python by doing little contributions here and there, so I'll have a look if I can add this feature :).
