Question:

I’m trying to update the Indeni software using “imanage” but am getting an error “server certificate verification failed”. What do I do?


Answer:

During the update process, the HTTPS certificate of the server providing the update packages gets verified. If you are seeing this error, you are probably using a proxy (configured through “imanage” hopefully). A first step would be to pull the server certificate of AWS S3 service we use to host the Indeni software packages:


echo -n | openssl s_client -connect s3.amazonaws.com:443 | \

sed -ne '/-BEGIN CERTIFICATE-/,/-END CERTIFICATE-/p' | \

sudo tee '/usr/local/share/ca-certificates/s3.crt'

sudo update-ca-certificates


If this still doesn’t work, try to override the server certificate check:

sudo nano /etc/apt/apt.conf


Add the following line at the end:

Acquire::https::s3.amazonaws.com::Verify-Peer "false";

running into issues with this process. Tried all the steps above.


when attempting to update packages:

have whitelisted the S3/AWS FQDN, and added (3) different explicit IP addresses to our content filtering appliance.


tried to wget all the deb files, that didnt work either

ran all these commands too:

1) sudo apt-get update

2) sudo apt-get upgrade

3) sudo indeni-collector restart

4) sudo indeni-server restart


anyone else ran into this? Apparently I'm about 100~ pkgs behind.

This should probably not be in the "Check Point" part of the forum
