Update check fails, digging into why

There was a problem connecting to the Textpattern update server. Please try again later.

I’m getting this on every 4.7.3 -> 4.8.0 update this morning, the common factor being it was me who built the servers…so let’s assume I’m doing something wrong. I’ve checked back every two hours (outside the 1 hour check window), same thing.

The URL is textpattern.com/version.json (which is also on a server which I built, the irony is not lost on me). It is live, it is serving traffic to numerous hosts, there is no rate-limiting, the Textpattern server end appears OK.

I can curl it:

$ curl "https://textpattern.com/version.json"
{
  "textpattern-version": {
    "release": "4.8.0",
    "prerelease": null
  }
}

Perhaps there’s a snag with the PHP side of things. I have allow_url_fopen enabled. JSON support is enabled.

I have the luxury of being able to poke and prod the server, so is there anything I can try at a PHP or Textpattern level that would explain why this error has started occurring? I can assign some time to this, and I’m happy to report back, and I can spec out a doc if there are useful findings.
