[Message part 1 (text/plain, inline)]

Package: apt
  Version: 1.4.7

After replacing all http with their https counterparts in my sources list and
installing apt-transport-https apt complains about forbidden redirect to http:

Err:5 ascii-security Release
  Redirection from https to
'' is forbidden

The problem seems to be the same for jessie-security uris and server related:

$ curl -I

HTTP/1.1 302 Moved Temporarily
Server: nginx/1.9.9
Date: Sun, 23 Jul 2017 06:37:21 GMT
Content-Type: text/html
Content-Length: 160
Connection: keep-alive

other uris in sources list (<dist>, <dist>-updates) are working as exected.

Kind regards

Harald Hellmuth
