Alexa Skill Flash Briefing Feed configuration: Error fetching the requested URL

Hi, I'm having some problem with my alexa skill: ID: amzn1.ask.skill.cbf72457-0886-4db3-8056-6c7ee2f2e176 when trying to configure a Flash Briefing Feed, I always get the "Error: Error fetching the requested URL.". The url is https://www.bricking.news/feed/alexa/en and it seems to respond correctly (content type json and valid json). The SSL certificate is issued by Let's Encrypt and I get an A on https://www.ssllabs.com/ssltest/analyze.html?d=bricking.news Can you please help me understanding how to let amazon fetching the feed? Thank you very much in advance. Francesco

You can't use a Let's Encrypt certificate with Flash Briefings. You can either use a different certificate from a supported provider or just use http for the feed.

Wow, really? What's wrong with Let's Encrypt certs?
