Although to be honest it appears more likely that it's the server certificate that is invalid, as per the error message. 7.90.004 uses a different version of LibreSSL to OpenELEC 6.0.3, this could be one of many security issues "fixed".

Hi Mr. Milhouse.
I'm quit sure that if I use the lastest build I will have the same problem....
The problem is that the certificate will expires in year 2046 and the LibreSSL 2.3.x will not work well on the Raspberry Pi due to "Year 2038 bug".

See here:

This is the reason that with oldest version such as OpenELEC 6.0.3 or with LibreELEC (Jarvis 16.1) v7.0.2 I did not have this problem (beacuse the OpenSSL / LibreSSL is older version).

So, I expect, that all certificates that will expires after 03:14:07 UTC on 19 January 2038 will have the same problem on all LibreELEC with Kodi 17.0.

Hope in a fix.


Thanks. Yes, this is a 32-bit OS issue (more specifically, a 32-bit ABI issue). Your certificate would be fine in a 64-bit OS, indeed there is no problem with the sample certificates shown on github when testing the latest LibreELEC Generic (x86_64) builds.

However there are no immediate plans for a 64-bit version of LibreELEC for RPi (which would only support RPi3 hardware), so fixing this in libressl to support post-2038 dates on 32-bit platforms is the only practical solution. I would expect this to be resolved in libressl at some point as it's going to affect a lot of platforms, but until then it might be easier for certificate authorities to avoid using outlandish post-2038 expiry dates.
