Re: [tor-relays] Debian is not allowing tor to update despite it being listed as a trusted respritory

Certificate verification failed: The certificate is NOT trusted. The

certificate chain uses expired certificate. Could not handshake: Error

in the certificate verification. [IP: 443]

Maybe renew the key ?

The repo uses a LetsEncrypt certificate.

Odds are, the OP’s system’s trust store is quite old and so still has the old root in place - LE’s intermediate has multiple signatures and one of the roots expired last year.


sudo apt-get -y install ca-certificates

Should bring it up to date (assuming there’s a relatively modern openssl in use - I think 1.0 will throw an error either way because it still tries to follow both forks in the chain and borks when it sees the expired cert).
