No recent apps found. - Why? Because all Trusted Credentials turned Off?

Fresh install of FDroid 1.10

6 month old major brand phone.
Android 9


All set to “Off” in:
Settings > Security > Encryption & Credentials > Trusted Credentials

FDroid main screen Latest tab says:
No recent apps found.
Once your list of apps had been updated,
the latest apps should show here.

FDroid Updates tab:
Congratulations! Your apps are up to date.

Why are no apps available?

Do I needed to turn on some Trusted Credentials
so FDroid will download or show apps that are available?

How do I get FDroid
know what apps are available,
& show the available apps?


Why would you disable all root certificates? That breaks TLS and by it HTTPS.

No apps are available in F-Droid, because it likely was never able to download any repositories.

Thanks SZ

  1. Seems foolish to trust unknows. Bad security.

  2. “likely”: So,
    2a. Can someone here say for sure?
    2b. If yes, Howto remedy?
    2b2. Which Trusted Credentials are necessary for FDroid to download repositories?


Bad security is also when things do not work that should work. I don’t know how details but has the following trust chain:

depth=3 C = GB, ST = Greater Manchester, L = Salford, O = Comodo CA Limited, CN = AAA Certificate Services
verify return:1
depth=2 C = US, ST = New Jersey, L = Jersey City, O = The USERTRUST Network, CN = USERTrust RSA Certification Authority
verify return:1
depth=1 C = GB, ST = Greater Manchester, L = Salford, O = Sectigo Limited, CN = Sectigo RSA Domain Validation Secure Server CA
verify return:1
depth=0 CN =
verify return:1

So you have to trust at least “C = GB, ST = Greater Manchester, L = Salford, O = Comodo CA Limited, CN = AAA Certificate Services”.

But please be aware that this works as long as the current certificate is in place. This can change anytime.
