      Thank you thank you thank you.

      Usually I'm keen check to Changes, etc etc

      Now I feel the error message should mention Mozilla::CA / PERL_LWP_SSL_VERIFY_HOSTNAME explicitly

      Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I hope you earn much good karma for posting the solution!

    I was getting this error while doing twitter authentication with Dancer. So for the total perl newbies like me, what the answer post is saying i, you need to reinstall/update LWP::UserAgent and install/update Mozilla::CA.
    sudo cpan install LMP::UserAgen Mozilla::CA
    This is what fixed it for me.
