I would assume that the wpa_supplicant build in Ubuntu is using OpenSSL
while the debug logs from the embedded device were using the internal
TLS implementation in wpa_supplicant. Have you left out ca_cert
configuration in the network block? If yes, that disables at least parts
of the server certificate validation. In case of OpenSSL, it is possible
that this has even disabled the validity period verification.
