      Description

       
      I thought FreeNAS 11.2-U3 was now using https (not http) for updates, but if I block FreeNAS at my firewall, and check for updates, FreeNAS web UI says:

      "HTTPConnectionPool(host='update-master.ixsystems.com', port=80): Max retries exceeded with url: /FreeNAS/trains.txt (Caused by NewConnectionError('urllib3.connection.HTTPConnection object at 0x8229f2198: Failed to establish a new connection: [Errno 61] Connection refused',)): Automatic update check failed. Please check system network settings."

      I confirmed at my firewall that it really is trying to access 12.201.205.119 port 80. I would have expected to see only port 443 connections.
       
      Perhaps part/most of the update process uses https, but clearly some of it still uses http.
