      Description

      If during apt-get update command you get the following (happens in Ubuntu Trusty):

      E: Method https has died unexpectedly!
      E: Sub-process https received a segmentation fault.
      

      This is due to a bug fixed in Debian apt http method fixed in 2009: https://github.com/Debian/apt/commit/dda7233c5d3879f2580543ead0ad7cd76196a160#diff-c8367b0733401af8a29f502c70434b89
      that was never applied to the https method until recently.

      This means that all modern web servers (Tomcat 8.5, 9, Squid, ...) and the new HTTP/2 will stop sending the reason phrase in the HTTP status.

      The Tomcat dev team waited for more than a year before adding the flag back: https://bz.apache.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=60362
