Bug Description

[Impact]
fwupd is configured to use an Amazon server for downloading firmware metadata. As requested by upstream:

"The current CDN (~$100/month) is kindly sponsored by Amazon, but that won't
last forever. In the future we can switch to a 'dumb' provider like BunnyCDN
for 1/10th of the cost.

Use a CNAME we control to make switching CDN providers easy in the future."

[Test Case]
Still able to install firmware as before

[Regression Potential]
Some risk of breaking firmware updates due to server configuration, but this matches upstreams setup and is the behaviour in fwupd 1.0.6 (in bionic onwards).

Note wont fix in artful as that is about to go EOL and the existing server should continue to work until then.

Given 'fwupdmgr refresh' still works without error I'm going to confirm this.
