Jenkins fails to clone after gitlab upgrade

Hello, I upgraded Gitlab 9.5.4 CE to latest version 10.3.3 CE and have problems. Jenkins cant clone repos and throws errors.

Updated gitlab, git jenkins plugins.
SSL certs are valid, I can connect to gitlab webui, can clone from console.

By being able to clone from console, do you mean you can login to Jenkins slave and do a git clone from there?

Yes I login to Jenkins slave and do a git clone successfully.

I reverted vm back with 9.5.4 and updated it to 9.5.8, Jenkins works as expected. When I have free time, will try to update 9.5.8 to latest and will see if the same problem occurs .
