    Are you using a personal PC on your work network?

    Some companies intercept all traffic for monitoring and re-encrypt SSL with a local company generated certificate (man in the middle, but "legit" because it is their private network). This cert needs to be installed on all company computers. If you connect a personal PC without the cert installed you will get those errors.

    Yup that will mess with certificates in some cases if your router is set to the wrong time that could also give you errors
