Description

Add https version of deb.torproject.org repository in the install section of Tor on Ubuntu or Debian.

Using the HTTPS transport for APT (package manager) will overcome censorship/blocking from DPIs and filtering equipment that block on the HTTP protocol.

It could also suggest using the onion service from https://onion.torproject.org/ after the initial install.

When making this change, be sure to check if apt-transport-https package is required before the source can be used. In buster it is not but it was in jessie (don't know about stretch).
