Module installation, SSL error

I just configured a new puppetserver, with Debian 8 (Jessie). Clean install.

I installed Puppet from the Puppet repo and installed ca-certificates. When trying to install something I get:

Error: Could not connect via HTTPS to
Unable to verify the SSL certificate The certificate may not be signed by a valid CA The CA bundle included with OpenSSL may not be valid or up to date

All hints towards this issue go to installing ca-certificates. I have installed this package, I also see the GeoTrust CA installed in /etc/ssl/certs/.

I noticed the certificate on is a deprecated SHA-1 certificate. Could this be the source of this issue? Or does someone have another thing to try?

I managed to resolve the issue, by manually copying/symlinking the certificates from /etc/ssl/certs to /opt/puppetlabs/puppet/ssl/certs/

No clue why the "usual" way didn't work in my case. It was a clean install.

I just tested this on a 8.2 Debian server without error. (ca-certificates=20141019 and openssl=1.0.1k-3+deb8u2)
