Started getting "There was an unknown error while retrieving the price
quotes" at the start of this month.

Running Fedora 22 with gnucash 2.6.12

I know sometimes the websites change their formats etc which can mess
things up, so I have tried a few different sources, but it makes no

The odd thing is, if I use gnc-fq-dump I get valid data. e.g.

[mike at blackstock ~]$ gnc-fq-dump yahoo BP.L
Finance::Quote fields Gnucash uses:
    symbol: BP.L                 <=== required
      date: 10/07/2016           <=== required
  currency: GBP                  <=== required
      last: 4.8545               <=\       
       nav:                      <=== one of these
     price: 4.8545               <=/        
  timezone:                      <=== optional
[mike at blackstock ~]$ 

It seems to affect all my UK quoted stocks, but nothing else. Anyone
got any ideas what is going on ?
