I am running a mongo db docker container on a network using only https. The container uses apt-get for installing packages. Since network allows only https connections,apt-get is not working for me. I have tried to change http with https in /etc/apt/sources.list and /etc/apt/sources.list.d after installing apt-transport-https. But nothing worked for me. Here is my /etc/apt/sources.list after replacing https with https

deb https://deb.debian.org/debian jessie main
deb https://security.debian.org/debian-security jessie/updates main
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian jessie-updates main

The mongodb-org.list file in /etc/apt/sources.list.d looks like

deb https://repo.mongodb.org/apt/debian jessie/mongodb-org/3.2 main

after doing all this apt-get update shows

Get:1 https://repo.mongodb.org jessie/mongodb-org/3.2 InRelease [384 B]

  • This is an interesting find. It appears that security.debian.org presents an SSL certificate for schmelzer.debian.org. This is failing for good reason! Nov 19, 2019 at 12:30

The security updates can't be retrieved from https connection , explained on debian

The security.debian.org hosts currently do not have publicly verifiable SSL certificates on HTTPS and hence cannot be used with HTTPS at the moment.

Your can edit your /etc/apt/sources.list as follow:

deb https://deb.debian.org/debian jessie main
deb http://security.debian.org/debian-security jessie/updates main
deb https://deb.debian.org/debian jessie-updates main

To solve the gpg key error for MongoDB , you should update the gpg key, see Import the public key used by the package management system:

wget -qO - https://www.mongodb.org/static/pgp/server-3.2.asc | sudo apt-key add -

  • @xaglez The issue is you can't receive the security updates. It is strongly recommended to keep the security repository in your sources.

    The issue is my network only allows HTTPS connections and blocks all incoming and outgoing HTTP connections .So if we keep security repository ,which only have HTTP mirror i will not be able to do apt operations

If you are using Debian, update your /etc/apt/sources.list entries to point to the official https mirror redirector:

deb https://deb.debian.org/debian/ <dist> <suite>
deb-src https://deb.debian.org/debian/ <dist> <suite>

e.g. for Debian unstable:

deb https://deb.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
deb-src https://deb.debian.org/debian/ unstable main
