What you are seeing is someone intercepting the traffic between you and the
real servers. This could be anything from an ASN BGP attack to a security tool
which is to look for phishing, botnets, or other traffic. [Depending on the
place, traffic at universities can be 20-65% botnet traffic because they
usually have a large pipe and rules to not stop research.] I am going to lean
towards this being that the university has put in a f5 proxy tool to try to
stop that traffic by redirecting any certs it finds troublesome as bad. [And I
am going to guess that Let's Encrypt is being treated as troublesome.]
Thank you for your reply, Stephen. I've updated the ticket at the
university with more information based on it. I do hope they can fix
whatever it is they're up to. Otherwise, I will be unable to do any
Fedora related work from university (or when connected to their VPN).
