getExternalData() Connection Failure for SSL (sometimes)

Got an updated server from 5.3.9 to . All seems to work except for in CFadmin I can’t connect to the Lucee update server when in update or Applications section of CFadmin - Connection Failure errors - there is no firewall or limitations on outgoing ports.

Some CFHTTP works over SSL eg: bandcamp and soundcloud , but not to the site hosted on the same box which has a valid certificate (via Cloudflare).
I tried installing in SSL Certificates but didnt seem to make a difference.

Don’t forget to tell us about your stack!

OS : Linux (4.14.252-131.483.amzn1.x86_64)
Java Version : 64bit 1.8.0_92 (Oracle Corporation) 64bit
Tomcat Version : Apache Tomcat/8.0.35
Lucee Version :

You java version is pretty old.
That could be a problem because you java keystore is outdated.

What version of Java should I go for, to update on AWS is not a straighforward as a yum command as far as I can see.
As I am not on Amazon Linux 2 yet I cant
yum update past this version: java-1.8.0-openjdk-

I’m not using Lucee 6 yet, but I’d expect it to run with Java 11 or perhaps 17. To find out for sure, you could do a full install in either a dev or VM environment and see what’s bundled with the Lucee installer.
