Problem installing open-release/lilac.3


I was trying to build back a native lilac.3 instance today, and I got the following error message:

npm ERR! Error while executing:

npm ERR! /usr/bin/git ls-remote -h -t git://

npm ERR!

npm ERR! fatal: remote error:

npm ERR! The unauthenticated git protocol on port 9418 is no longer supported.

npm ERR! Please see Improving Git protocol security on GitHub | The GitHub Blog for more information.

npm ERR!

npm ERR! exited with error code: 128

According to Improving Git protocol security on GitHub | The GitHub Blog it might be because the Ansible scripts are still using git://

I know maple.1 is the current release, but for upgrade purposes from koa.3 I still need to install lilac.3 with native instead of Tutor.

It this something we should look into? As a non-core contributor, there is nothing I can do here…

It looks like a dependency in the insights package being installed by default which needs edx-ui-toolkit.git.

@jmbowman told me that they’re also hitting this in Maple trying to get an insights devstack image built. The same issue probably affects master.
