@lleachii AFAIK it updated on HTTPS even on my older 15.05 setup but I am going from memory...
Regarding wolfssl, a friend works there so I had the name in mind
Anyhow, I quickly removed it and installed your suggestion: now it works, thanks for the tip!
(of course, I'm going to let him know...)
Hey, wolfSSL contributor here. We're happy to help fixing this, if you can provide more information about the problem. It could be useful that wolfSSL packages are updated to the latest version (4.0.0 at the moment of writing this), and if you could let us know more details on the nature of this issue.
If security is important to you, I'd always suggest to use wolfSSL over mbedTLS, because reported vulnerabilities are fixed much quicker, and all the latest standards are properly supported.
WolfSSL has been supporting TLS 1.3 since way before it was even accepted as standard, while mbedTLS has not yet communicated any plans to implement it, and it's been now an RFC for several months already. This alone might be a major security risk, seeing the vulnerabilities on TLS up to v.1.2 that have been disclosed lately.
I've also notice that mbedTLS stopped communicating about security disclosures more than a year ago, so I am not sure if any effort has been invested on their security-related research and development lately.
