Make sure the certifying server is selected and the same as the administration server of your Domino domain.

I can see the names are updated in all server and I can see their names in names.nsf. I did server restart many times still the same problem and also I have selected the correct certifier and admin server. We upgraded the server from the old verion 8.0.1 to new verion 8.5.3

I run the below still the same problem

Run updall -r on names.nsf

Then ,,,

Run tell adminp p all on the domino console ....

Ok ,,, what about the other questions I asked in my previous comment ,,

Since when did you notice this event ???
Was there any kind of change on the Domino Server , CertifierID etc.???

In other words,, Did this happen after the upgrade ?

If another Admin accesses it with his ID and trys to recertify these users does it show the same error .

Now,, have a copy of the names.nsf (NAB) on your Local drive then try this on the production ...

did someone lose the password to the certifier and try to hide it by generating a new one with the same name?
