[SOLVED]Iridium browser problem with PPA

Post by Charlie » Mon Dec 24, 2018 1:27 pm

When I try to update sources I get an error from Iridium. This is a recent development as all was fine a few days ago. My list of updates now has a red X. And refresh points to Iridium as the culprit.

Code: Select all

The repository 'https://downloads.iridiumbrowser.de/deb stable Release' does not have a Release file.
Data from such a repository can't be authenticated and is therefore potentially dangerous to use.
See apt-secure(8) manpage for repository creation and user configuration details.
Failed to fetch https://downloads.iridiumbrowser.de/deb/dists/stable/main/binary-amd64/Packages server certificate verification failed.
CAfile: /etc/ssl/certs/ca-certificates.crt
CRLfile: noneSome index files failed to download.
They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.

looks like https://iridiumbrowser.de/ fails the certificate check in my chrome browser you'll have to wait for site owners to update new certificate

The red X is gone and I hadn't noticed. Thanks for letting me know. Holiday over perhaps.
