Debian upgrade error?

Dear All,

Probably in line with other recent reports here, my debian buster install did break upon the following update:

jicofo/stable 1.0-508-1 -> 1.0-539-1 amd64
jitsi-meet-prosody/stable 1.0.3729-1 -> 1.0.3928-1 all
jitsi-meet-web-config/stable 1.0.3729-1 -> 1.0.3928-1 all
jitsi-meet-web/stable 1.0.3729-1 -> 1.0.3928-1 all
jitsi-meet/stable 1.0.4101-1 -> 1.0.4335-1 all

The log file used by nginx gets filled with entries like this (where is my firewall running HAProxy):

2020/03/29 00:13:28 [error] 3013#3013: *217 connect() failed (111: Connection refused) while connecting to upstream, client:, server:, upstream: “”, bytes from/to client:0/0, bytes from/to upstream:0/0

Please be so kind to share information on how to proceed. In the meantime, I did revert the VM and disabled unattended upgrades.

My setup is (not ideal): I am running meet behind HAProxy which does handle the certificate and ssl uploading. As I did not want to mess with the configuration, I did forward to the SSL port of the debian VM running meet with a private certificate. Of course, it would be more efficient to run meet unencrypted then, but I did not find a simple way to do that. Is there a best practice for this that will outlast (regular) updates?

The nginx errors can be removed by substituting the port 443 within the file /etc/nginx/modules-enabled/60-jitsi-meet.conf by 4443. After this, all processes will run well again. Unfortunatelly in my case the video stream is still missing.
