applets, desklets, extentions Cache refresh SSL error [SOLVED]

Post by EmJayAu » Thu Dec 21, 2017 4:48 am

Tried to install new applets, desklets and extensions and was hit with the following error message for all of them:

An error occurred while trying to access the server. Please try again in a little while.
Details: urlopen error [SSL: CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED] certificate verify failed (_ssl.c:590)

Anyone else???

Same here (using another distro).

If you try to connect to https://cinnamon-spices.linuxmint.com/, firefox complains about an expired certificate. You can still add an exception and access the site, then download and install your applet manually.
But the certificate should be renewed as quickly as possible.

Obviously the owner (Clem?) has missed to renew the certificate, before it expired 7 hours ago.

The certificate for the forum has been renewed 2 weeks ago, the certificate for the blog in the beginning of the months, so spices seems to be forgotten.

Thanx a lot guys. I was a little worried, but seems the problem was found, not quite resolved tho.
The cache seems to refresh, but the window is left empty, for each of them, applets, desklets and extensions...
It might end up by resolving itself, might just need a little more patience, I guess!!
Thanx a lot guys!!

I cannot confirm, all works again as expected. If the cache gets refreshed (no connection error any more), but the window is empty, it seems to be a different issue, which deserves a new topic.

For a first test you might create a fresh new user account and test there, also test with the live system.
