The SSL certificate wasn't purchased from Godaddy by any chance, was it? I've seen lots of this type of error being reported when using a GoDaddy supplied certificate.

Also, try enabling TLS 1.0 and disabling firewall temporarily, then see if the certificate will download. Both of those have solved similar problems for others, albeit not for Skype, but identical errors reported. A firewall rule exception has needed to be added.

Hope that's helpful.

Might sound like a daft question but is external access configured?

Hi mogurek,

Can you expand all the arrows under the Additional Details for both errors from your attachment and re-post them. That's where goodies lie.
