Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run 'lftp https://arxiv.org'.

Actual results:
Attempt to connect fails with the error message: "Fatal error: Certificate verification: Not trusted: no issuer was found (C4:3F:D4:BD:3C:BA:B7:8C:45:B1:6B:87:3B:C0:7B:A4:CF:32:99:A2)".

Comment 1 Joachim Frieben 2017-08-01 03:10:25 EDT
No improvement after upgrading to lftp-4.8.0-1.fc26.
Comment 2 Michal Ruprich 2017-11-14 04:26:05 EST
It seems that the problem is caused by a missing certificate in the chain of certificates returned by gnutls function in lftp (at least according to the upstream). I tried to look into the problem and suggested some ideas to the upstream.
Comment 3 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-03 04:28:58 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora  'version'
of '26'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 26 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
