Sebastian, Philipp this may not be useful data, but I receive the "no
certificate received" error as well if my sslcacertfile value is
either not set properly or completely unset. So even if sslcacertfile
is set, if it's not reading the right cacerts, you will get a "no
certificate received" error, in my tests.

I was also caught out by this error on OSX until I created a dummy
cacert (as per the guidance on the Mercurial CACerts page at ) and pointed to
that. The upside of this technique is that I can use the same dotfile
on my linux of osx boxes by simply keeping the dummy cert at the same
location on both.
