Subject Problem with sa-update via proxy
Date Tue, 05 Jun 2018 08:24:47 GMT
I have recently upgraded my mail mta servers from Ubuntu 14.04  to Ubuntu 16.04 but the daily
spamassassin cron job is failing to update the database in /usr/lib/spamassassin/3.9004001/update_spamassassin_org
folder. I have made sure that the cron job has the proxy env variables set and also updated
But it still regularly fails with this error. I have even configured .curlrc file in root
profile with proxy settings.


channel: could not find working mirror, channel failed sa-update failed for unknown reasons
I can manually update it ok, but not via a cron job. What else do I need to configure to ensure
it works every time?
