This error is due to a misconfiguration of VirtualHost with SSL. The server is trying to respond to a request on port 443 with unencrypted HTTP.

Typically your conf/httpd.conf file will include conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf:

Include conf/extra/httpd-ssl.conf

The default httpd-ssl.conf file will have a section like this:

<VirtualHost _default_:443>
...
</VirtualHost>

Almost certainly the problem is that your server is using this default or the server is not matching your virtual host's IP at all. For SSL to work you must match the virtual host by IP address not name. [Apache2_mod_vhost_alias_ssl|Named virtual host won't work with SSL].
