I am using uncomplicated firewall (ufw) but the ports of 80 and 443 are open to receive traffic.

What am i doing wrong?

Are you also allowing outgoing traffic on port 443?

Yes. Incoming aswell as outgoing traffic is allowed.

Apparently the process is just very very slow. But it seems to be working. Sorry for the inconvenience.
