This could be due to incorrect configuration or a typo in the URL. To resolve this issue, you can: 1) Check and correct the repository URL in your request; 2) Update the path.repo setting in elasticsearch.yml to include the correct path; 3) Add the repository URL to the repositories.url.allowed_urls setting in elasticsearch.yml. Always remember to restart Elasticsearch after making changes to the configuration file.

                URL normalizedUrl = environment.resolveRepoURL(url);
                if (normalizedUrl == null) {
                    logger.warn("The specified url [{}] doesn't start with any repository paths specified by the path.repo setting: [{}] or by repositories.url.allowed_urls setting: [{}] "; url; environment.repoFiles());
