swupdate.openvpn.net does not support IPv6

We are in 2021 and swupdate.openvpn.net does not yet support IPv6, granting it doesn't care about the absurd lack of IPV4s, plus is not trying to comply with the new technologies.

I was in shock when I did an

Code: Select all

apt update
just to see this:

Code: Select all

Fetched 1.382 kB in 3s (438 kB/s)              
Reading package lists... Done
W: Failed to fetch https://swupdate.openvpn.net/community/openvpn3/repos/dists/focal/InRelease  Something wicked happened resolving 'swupdate.openvpn.net:https' (-5 - No address associated with hostname)
W: Some index files failed to download. They have been ignored, or old ones used instead.
This is completely insane, in 2021.

Code: Select all

└> host -t AAAA swupdate.openvpn.net
swupdate.openvpn.net has no AAAA record
