I’m on Parrot 4.8, and having multiple issues installing new software. I believe they may be primarily server side, but I am unsure.
sudo apt install <package name> my machine is returning:
“E: Failed to fetch https://deb.parrot.sh/parrot/pool/main/x/xen/libxenstore3.0_4.11.3+24-g14b62ab3e5-1_amd64.deb Redirection from https to ‘http://mirrors.mit.edu/parrot/pool/main/x/xen/libxenstore3.0_4.11.3+24-g14b62ab3e5-1_amd64.deb’ is forbidden [IP: 2606:4700:3033::681b:82c1 443]”
and multiple copies of:
“E: Failed to fetch https://parrot.ca.mirror.cythin.com/parrot/pool/main/g/gtk-vnc/gir1.2-gtk-vnc-2.0_1.0.0-1_amd64.deb Certificate verification failed: The certificate is NOT trusted. The name in the certificate does not match the expected. Could not handshake: Error in the certificate verification. [IP: 2607:5300:60:b77::1 443]”
Regarding the first, it seems a reasonable security measure to forbid redirection to tls-free http websites. Is there someone who should be informed that their webserver is being avoided because it lacks basic security for 2020? Is there a simple way to get apt to not redirect to this website and fetch from one with tls instead?
The second one is even stranger because I have run
sudo grep -r cythin /etc,
sudo grep -r cythin /usr,
sudo grep -r cythin /var, and
sudo grep -r cythin /home, and none of them returns any indication of a cythin.com domain being stored anywhere on my computer, much less in the /etc/apt/ directory. Clearly their certificate is invalid (likely it is just expired), but why is apt even looking for this domain? How can I tell it not to and get it to look for software in a sensible location?
