When trying to update Cyberduck from an older version, Sparkle fails with:

2016-04-01 09:56:36,249 Cyberduck[28746]: Sparkle: Error: An error occurred in retrieving update information. Please try again
later. The resource could not be loaded because the App Transport Security policy requires the use of a secure connection. (URL

I think this is because the old, pre-App Transport Security updates RSS URL got stuck in ~/Library/Preferences/ch.sudo.cyberduck.plist. Upon going to Preferences -> Update and setting the update branch again, problem fixes itself.

I was concerned that for some users the autoupdate might be broken thanks to an old URL in SUFeedURL so that's why I'm reporting this bug nevertheless. I suppose a quick fix would be to replace http:// to https:// in SUFeedURL independently from what's being set there.
