"Error logging in: SSL handshake failed" when setting up account

Your device has probably set wrong date and time, which somehow affect the connection to SSL secured server. The solution is to set the correct date & time.

  1. Connect to your device via SSH (see SSH Access)
  2. Check if the date is incorrectly set
    $ date
  3. If not, update it (e.g. use UTC time from
    $ date -s "2017-12-11 12:00:00"
    $ hwclock --systohc
    $ reboot

Try to setup the account, it should work fine now.
