  1. Check your TLS certificates exist

in my case the error was caused due to Version 1 in TLS certificate

WITSC02X6385JGH:temp sjain68$ openssl x509 -in abcl.pem -text -noout
        Version: 1 (0x0)
        Serial Number: 14676524023181422786 (0xcbad7cd6eb3730c2)

Once I fixed the certificate so that it had Version 3 the error went away. To get a version 3 certificate, make sure you add the -extensions option to openssl ca command if you are using openssl ca to generate the certificate.
