Amazon, recently announced that it is not going to support it path styled API request for S3 bucket from 30th September,2020 . However, it will continue to support the virtual host style requests.

Amazon is currently supporting both the style which is based upon two different versions.

In an discussion forum on AWS this announcement was made

Amazon S3 currently supports two request URI styles in all regions: path-style (also known as V1) that includes bucket name in the path of the URI (example: //s3.amazonaws.com/<bucketname>/key), and virtual-hosted style (also known as V2) which uses the bucket name as part of the domain name (example: //<bucketname>.s3.amazonaws.com/key). In our effort to continuously improve customer experience, the path-style naming convention is being retired in favor of virtual-hosted style request format. Customers should update their applications to use the virtual-hosted style request format when making S3 API requests before September 30th, 2020 to avoid any service disruptions. Customers using the AWS SDK can upgrade to the most recent version of the SDK to ensure their applications are using the virtual-hosted style request format.

It means that from 30th september, 2020 onwards S3 bucket will not accept requests from V1 type of API calls.
