The following error indicates a possible certificate mismatch. You need to verify that the $HOME/.kube/config file contains a valid certificate, and regenerate a certificate if necessary. The certificates in a kubeconfig file are base64 encoded. The base64 --decode command can be used to decode the certificate and OpenSSL x509 -text -noout can be used for viewing the certificate information.
