After upgrading from to using Magento Connect, starting it o Mage All package (yes, it worked), my "check for updates" ha just stopped working.

When trying to check for updates, nothing is shown, just an empty column.

Bitnami Container @ Ubuntu 14.04 LTS @ Azure

I didn't go deep on why is it happening, but I find out that changing Curl requests from HTTPS to HTTP it worked again.

To do that I modified this file: /downloader/lib/Mage/HTTP/Client/Curl.php (line 371)

Changing this method signature from

protected function makeRequest(... $https = true)


protected function makeRequest(... $https = false)

I hope it helps.

  • Finally a solution that works, thank you for this.
