Does a VERBOSE output reveal any further hints?

I believe that error description is a bit misleading. CURLE_SSL_CACERT is
returned from two places (assuming you use OpenSSL) and both occur when a
verifying of the peer fails. Thus, the cert is most likely possible to read
but it just can't verify the peer's certificate.
