Just after installing OpenBSD onto VirtualBox, I couldn’t use
pkg_add due to the error:
$ doas pkg_add -u https://cdn.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/7.0/packages-stable/amd64/: TLS handshake failure: ocsp verify failed: ocsp response not current https://cdn.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/7.0/packages/amd64/: TLS handshake failure: ocsp verify failed: ocsp response not current https://cdn.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD/7.0/packages/amd64/: empty
ping cdn.openbsd.org was successful.
$ doas vi /etc/installurl
to switch to the FTP server:
- https://cdn.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD + https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD
Then it turned successful.
$ doas pkg_add -u quirks-4.54 signed on 2022-02-12T18:54:43Z quirks-4.54: ok
Why happened (guess)
After a while (an hour), I reverted
- https://ftp.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD + https://cdn.openbsd.org/pub/OpenBSD
It didn’t bring any error:
$ doas pkg_add -u quirks-4.54 signed on 2022-02-12T18:54:43Z
To my surprise, It may have been fixed over time. Apart from it, the first success may have done.
I guess it was because ntp status. I perhaps had never met the failure when installing OpenBSD onto physical server.
For information, the ntp status was below after the failure had been fixed:
$ doas ntpctl -s status 5/5 peers valid, constraint offset -32564s, clock unsynced, clock offset is -32561707.819ms
I wrote a post about the real reason discovered a few days later.
