This is also my guess.

Update feed for 4.1.5 did work when it was released. First error reports
came in around March, I think.
I am pretty sure it works for 4.1.6-RC1 if you simulate it locally.

All I can say is that my builds for Windows from trunk do not have this
issue. Other users reported, that earlier versions of AOO get connection
to the update server without error message.

Thinking about it, I remember a similar situation some years ago (before
I got involved in the project). For several weeks I saw exactly the same
error message on a Windows machine. After some time it was back to normal.
Maybe there is an old ticket at Infra to be found?
