#22472: cURL library error #3: malformed

My installation is on an unmanaged VPS, however it is fully updated. Download IDs are set for each site and installed per your instructions. All sites currently using Akeeba fail to update properly. Note: I am using several VPS accounts, all self-configured. I check for and install Ubuntu updates daily. Automatic updates worked fine until 1.3.0. I've checked and my subscription is current with your company.

Specific questions:
1. Even though the PHP version is current, it is possible I'm missing a key library. I've researched this, but haven't found anything missing. I can generate valid SHA256 hashes from the command line.

2. Do you have some sort of troubleshooting advice or tool that would help identify the issue?

It seems that there is a bug in the updater code. You will need to upgrade to version 1.3.1 (when we release it, probably in two weeks or so) manually. Then the upgrades to future versions will work correctly.
