Confirmed, I relaxed the 3rd party cookie setting to "from visited",
now I get a new error message which is much easier to understand
(and which I will look at tomorrow):

The tool_config_file setting in universe_wsgi.ini must include at
least one shed tool configuration file name with a <toolbox> tag that
includes a tool_path attribute value which is a directory relative to
the Galaxy installation directory in order to automatically install
tools from a Galaxy tool shed (e.g., the file name shed_tool_conf.xml
whose <toolbox> tag is <toolbox tool_path="../shed_tools">).

See the Installation of Galaxy tool shed repository tools into a local
Galaxy instance section of the Galaxy tool shed wiki for all of the

Getting back to the cookie problem, perhaps the error message
