When I run suricata-update ona new installation I am getting the following warning and errors. I have run suricata-update update-sources numerous times as warning says to do. Does not fix issue.
I have enabled et/pro source.

Can you try
suricata-update -v update-sources? It should give us a little more detail as to whats going on.

If I search for an index.yaml file on system, I find one in ./home/secadmin/suricata-5.0.3/suricata-update/tests/index.yaml. Is that the problem because I have suricata version 6.0.1 on this system? Do I need to reinstall suricata-update? Thanks.
I think I installed suricata version 6.0.1 using a PPA. It should have brought in and install the latest version of suricata-update.
Looks like the certificates on your system might be out of date… Can you
Yes. It shows me the content of the index.yaml file without any errors. But when I run suricata-update I still get errors.
Where do I get the latest certificate for this?
It should just use the root ca’s provided by your operating system. Did this used to work? Then stop? That suggest some package might need to be updated on your system. Tho, not being familiar with Ubuntu/Debug, I’m not sure off-hand what this might be. Or perhaps do you go through a proxy that has an invalid or self-signed certificate?
You can try adding the command line option
--no-check-certificate which will allow it continue on certain kinds of certificate failures.
suricata-update --no-check-certificate update-sources
Running it with no certificate check allowed the index to be updated. Then running suricata-update with no certificate check allowed the ey pro signatures to be loaded and configured.
I will have to find a way to get the latest ca certificates installed. I tried a few things but there were no updates to the ca certicate repository.
