You will need to add proto=WPA into this network block if you are using
WPA-PSK. Without this, wpa_supplicant assumes that you are enabling WPA2
and tries to use it instead of WPA.

In ap_scan=2 mode, wpa_supplicant does not request scan results. It just
configures the driver to try to associate with an AP. However, it does
configure security policy, including the version of WPA (WPA vs. WPA2).
If this does not match with the AP configuration, the driver will not
associate with the AP.
