Since Safari works fine with mirrors using Let's Encrypt certs
on Mac OS 10.14, this is a really confusing problem to debug.
I just remembered this thread after coming to the same
realization on a couple of TeX Live Utility bug reports, and
thanks to Andreas and Mojca for figuring out the real cause.

both use Let's Encrypt certs, and apparently need to fix the
certificate chain they're serving. What a mess.
