HTTP code 417 is:

 *417 - Expectation Failed*
The expectation given in the Expect request-header could not be fulfilled by
the server.

Because of this, I suspect it has something to do with the http proxy, but
given that you aren't having issues with other repos, I am not sure exactly
how that can be the case.  An incorrectly configured proxy should have the
same issue with other http-based repos...
