I haven’t looked into it yet simply out of a function of time. Obviously PyPI is checking
if it’s being accessed via HTTPS somehow, and obviously (due to the nature of the
error) it doesn’t believe it is being accessed via HTTPS. Since I know that it shouldn’t
be possible to access PyPI via non HTTPS I can only deduce that however it’s
determining that it’s running behind HTTPS isn’t working for one reason or another.

I don’t really know more than that at the moment.
