Paste to stopped working (now requires HTTPS?)

Bug Description

Version 1.5-1 in Xenial; no custom config

Pasting to appears to have stopped working at some point; pastebinit now returns a URL to the top of the site instead of to the paste. Apparently, the site now requires HTTPS. If I change the regex line in /usr/share/pastebin.d/ from “regexp =” to “regexp =”, it works and returns a working URL again. However, that URL still starts with “http:”, which really should be “https:” (but seems to redirect correctly to the HTTPS version). I'm not sure whether this is the fault of the site, due to a bug in pastebinit, or some configuration detail I'm overlooking.
