Hi, just trying to install a package into a 7.1.6 site but I get an error message saying "our.umbraco.com refuses to connect".
There is no error log message but there is a console error saying "Refused to display 'https://our.umbraco.com/error/?aspxerrorpath=/repo/' in a frame because it set 'X-Frame-Options' to 'sameorigin'." Is this the case, that the package repo no longer supports older Umbraco versions because they load into an iFrame?
Any work around available or am I going to have to do an unplanned upgrade and if so, to what minimum version?
Rather than upgrading, you should still be able to download packages from https://our.umbraco.com/packages and use "Install local" to install them.
If there had been a deliberate decision to remove support for the old iframe-based package repository, I'd expect to see a 404 error rather than this error page, so hopefully it's just a temporary problem.
If you do want to upgrade anyway, it looks like 7.5.0 would be the minimum version.
The error appears to come from a header being sent back from the packages site so I get the html in the response but the browser won't show it, hence it doesn't give a 404. It's just Umbraco don't want it appearing in an iFrame which is a bit unfortunate for older sites. Particularly if the owners don't have the necessary skills to fathom what's happening.
In the end I installed via NuGet but was a faff (historical reasons, not technical).
You're not getting the right HTML back in the response, though. Something in https://our.umbraco.com/repo/ is failing, and you're redirected to the error page. That error page then includes the X-Frame-Options header.
Presumably our.umbraco.com is set up to include the header unless the page expects to be displayed in an iframe, and the error page includes it by default.
