 If you look further in your debug log, you'll see
 (22:34:20) certificate/x509/tls_cached: Full chain verification failed
 (probably a bad signature algorithm), but found the last certificate
 CN=CAcert Class 3 Root,OU=http://www.CAcert.org,O=CAcert Inc. in the CA

 That's exactly what the issue issue is - your certificate is signed using
 the `sha1WithRSAEncryption` algorithm, but the intermediate certificates
 are signed with the insecure `md5WithRSAEncryption` algorithm.

 You'll need to look at the cacert documentation to set up your certificate
 chain with the appropriate certficates.
