Gcp: The certificate is not correctly signed by the trusted CA

Hi all,

I have done OTA on an ESP8266 that has been smoothly running an earlier firmware for some time. In essence, the firmware sends a JSON payload via MQTT to Google Cloud Platform’s IoT Core. The MQTT bridge between the ESP and the Cloud has been working flawlessly for the past weeks. However, after OTA, I get the error below.

I would greatly appreciate it if someone could help me out with understanding what’s going on. I’m happy to share more of my logs but basically, the firmware is stuck at this stage. Thank you for your guidance in advance!

Have a great day,

This and this.

I modified the title to reflect the origin of the error.


Thank you so much, I really appreciate the pointers and your help!

Thank you for your help @nliviu, and everyone else who helped so far with my other questions, too!

I managed to fix the issue described before.

My next question would be if it is possible to somehow update firmware that has the old ca-bundle rather than the updated one . Since the device still can connect to the WiFi, it is reachable on the local network. Therefore, I tried to OTA via RPC the new firmware (updated ca-bundle), which could go through if t wasn’t for a core-dump induced by lack of memory (my fault). Is there another way to somehow OTA the firmware with the updated ca-bundle onto the device?
