Magento Web Setup Wizard – no access from admin

Sunday, January 27th, 2019

Instead gives a 401 unauthorised access return and the message:

Welcome to Magento Admin, your online store headquarters. To use the Magento setup wizard sign into your Admin account and navigate to System => Tools => Web Setup Wizard

Check the secure url settings in Stores / Configuration / General / Web

Base URLs (Secure)
-> Use Secure URLs on Storefront -> Yes
-> Use Secure URLs in Admin -> Yes
-> Enable HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) -> Yes
-> Upgrade Insecure Requests -> Yes

(probably the last one was No)

and then flush the cache
