The issue you are facing:

Is this the first time you’ve seen this error? (Y/N):Y

Steps to replicate it:

  1. Use Passwords app
  2. HTTPS error

Because a picture is worth 1000 words, I’ve uploaded a screenshot. When accessing the Passwords app, Nextcloud fails with its HTTPS detection. Every other part of Nextcloud works fine so I could just skip using that app, but there’s clearly something wrong with the underlying HTTPS detection mechanism as you can see in the screenshot - I’m actually using HTTPS yet Nextcloud claims I’m not and gives zero details about how it made that determination making it impossible for this end-user at least to debug:

For anyone looking here: This issue is usually caused by some kind of configuration error. Passwords offers an HTTPS debugging option in the admin settings so you can see which values are actually used.
