Possibly this is to do with the

"Update to 1.9.0

- Drop privileges in many commands
- Drop privileges when fetching a file"

Possibly dropping privs to early?

I found that my lazy pf rule to only allow root to have http outbound
connections broke remote updates with the upgrade to the 1.9.x version,
which I suspect to be related to the privilege dropping as an explicit
allow http to my update server fixed it.
