As far as I know, nothing has changed in the spec file that could cause this

My first guess is that you build in a project with a too old signing key, so the
SSL certificate for kernel modules for secure boot can be created.

osc signkey --create $YOUR_PROJECT

That command did not fix the problem. I'm still getting the messages.

Can you please provide some pointers where you build?

My project is home:lwfinger:branches:Virtualization/virtualbox. The key creation command was "osc signkey --ssl home:lwfinger:branches:Virtualization". Using home:lwfinger as the project failed. From my local directory, the "osc build" works OK, but the builds triggered by "osc ci" fail with the SSL message. Strangely, the "osc r" command shows that everything succeeded. A representative build log is at
