This is most likely because the SSL certificate has been misconfigured.

Check your $SPLUNK_HOME\etc\certs\your_name.pem file. Look for a line that resembles the following:

-----END CERTIFICATE----------BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

This can cause some serious issues because it cannot be interpreted, as you might have noticed.

To fix this issue, use a text editor of choice and create a line break between the two files, i.e.

-----END CERTIFICATE-----
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

Tip: Count five hyphens at the start and end of the text.

You can now save the file and the error should be fixed!

BTW,
This problem also occurs when you have a
-----END CERTIFICATE----------BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
instead of
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

but not if you have
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY----------BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----

Seems formatting is inconsistently mandated when parsing.
