Honestly, I'd prefer not to diverge from Debian and use plain http as well
so that we limit the risk of regression related to https support.

In particular since our main http.kali.org host redirects to many other
mirrors whose certificates are not under our control. We are not monitoring
that all the certificates are valid.
