Q: Why do I get a unsupported protocol scheme "" error when trying to fetch a chart from my custom repo?

A: (Helm < 2.5.0) This is likely caused by you creating your chart repo index without specifying the --url flag. Try recreating your index.yaml file with a command like helm repo index --url http://my-repo/charts ., and then re-uploading it to your custom charts repo.

This behavior was changed in Helm 2.5.0.
