I quote

  When one side of an SSL/TLS communication wants to inform the peer about a
  special situation, it sends an alert. The alert is sent as a special
  message and does not influence the normal data stream (unless its contents
  results in the communication being canceled).


  "CU"/"certificate unknown"

  Some other (unspecified) issue arose in processing the certificate,
  rendering it unacceptable.


It seems as if the server doesn't like your certificate or something.
