Bug Description


As part of a rebuild against OpenSSL3, this package failed to build on one or
several architectures. You can find the details of the rebuild at

or for the amd64 failed build, directly at

We're planning to transition to OpenSSL 3.0 for the 22.04 release, and consider
this issue as blocking for this transition.

You can find general migration informations at
For your tests, you can build against libssl-dev as found in the PPA

Looking at the build failure, the problem lies in the openssl-sys crate.
It seems the version 0.9.64 of this crate should fix the failure:

Rico just mentioned on IRC that Simon confirmed that building against OpenSSL 3.0 works with the firefox beta branch.
