Private server: Push notification error

Hello,

I have a private blynk server running on a linux Ubuntu 16.04.6 LTS box. Everything works fine except when the code tries to send out a push notification. It keeps giving the following error in the logs:

ERROR- Error sending push. Reason General OpenSslEngine problem

Any idea what might be the cause of that?

Hello. What java version do you have?

ubuntu@instance-20200208-1543:~$ java -version
openjdk version "11.0.5" 2019-10-15
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (build 11.0.5+10-post-Ubuntu-2ubuntu116.04)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 11.0.5+10-post-Ubuntu-2ubuntu116.04, mixed mode, sharing)

I’m not sure this is exactly reason. However, I remember we had a problems with certificates on java 11 and Ubuntu 16.04. Could you please update Ubuntu to the latest one and java as well (lates one is 11.0.6)?

That seems to have solved the issue.
