Q: Later, I noticed a problem if I check for software updates. What happened?
On Ubuntu Desktop 22.04, Software Updater just says "Failed to download repository information. Check your internet connection".
Or on Debian 11 (GNOME), Software shows a popup error:
Unable to download updates:
E: https://dl.google.com/linux/chrome/deb stable InRelease is not (yet) available (Invalid response from proxy: HTTP/1.0 CONNECT denied (ask the admin to enabled HTTPS tunnels) [IP: my-server-IP 3142]
apt update shows the full error, on both Ubuntu and Debian.
Finally, if you use Ubuntu 22.04, but switched to using the GNOME Software app (e.g. to avoid snaps), there is no error message at all! It appears that security updates for the Chrome web browser will be skipped, without any warning. Maybe because it's an older version of GNOME Software.
