Can anybody else confirm whether blast v2.10.1 is having issues with performing remote searches?

I tried both the precompiled executables as well as the bioconda version, and both fail with -remote is passed. The error message in both cases is:

Warning: [blastn] Unavailable feature GNUTLS
Critical: [blastn] Unavailable feature GNUTLS
<snip>

This is despite GnuTLS being installed (via the package manager for the precompiled executables, and via conda for the conda installation).

I see that there is this thread on Bioconda's GitHub page, but doesn't look like anybody's mentioned the -remote issue recently.

Any workarounds anyone can suggest? (I guess I'll try using an older version in the meantime.)

Do you have direct internet access available from the computer you are trying this from? There is no restrictions via local firewall?

I've tried through two different internet connections, and the issue persists. Firewalls made no difference.

Edit: I downgraded the conda version to blast v2.7.1 and that works fine. So this is definitely a blast v2.10.1 issue (blast v2.9.1 also has problems with -remote).
