Package Manager issue behind proxy
the pfsense that i have installed inside my company uses proxy connections to get updates from pfsense sites.
I noted that package manager is not able to get the available packages or to retreive the last versions for the packages previously installed.
on the "available packages" i have this error message
"Unable to communicate with https://packages.pfsense.org. Please verify DNS and interface configuration, and that pfSense has functional Internet connectivity."
In the main dashboard is also reported a crash which shows this message
[26-Jan-2015 07:12:48 Europe/Rome] HTTP error, got response: HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request
Whith a packet capture i saw that a POST to packages.pfsense.org is the cause
5 07:08:41.038470 10.10.45.110 10.45.5.50 HTTP/XML 81 8080 39551 POST https://packages.pfsense.org:443/xmlrpc.php HTTP/1.0
8 07:08:41.360524 10.45.5.50 10.10.45.110 HTTP 523 39551 8080 HTTP/1.0 400 Bad Request (text/html)
This not happens for release updates.
A workaround is to replace https://packages.pfsense.org with http://packages.pfsense.org on /etc/inc/globals.inc but maybe is better to notify you this issue if it should be solved for next releases

I don't believe this was ever a (general) problem. It's been in feedback for 8 months. Assigning to cmb, and marking it 'Closed'.
If it comes back up, cmb to investigate.
