One way to fix this is to comment out the port 80 vhost in the plinth
apache configuration, and restart apache. So I would suggest splitting
plinth.conf into 2 files:
1) plinth.conf for HTTP (does nothing but redirect to HTTPS).
2) plinth-ssl.conf for HTTPS.

Then freedombox-setup can disable plinth.conf, since fbx.conf handles
the redirect as well.
