  That's good.

  That's not what the error message says.

  You edited the "authenticate" section, and removed the references to "eap".  Why?

  You also need to follow a methodical process, which would have caught this issue.  Change ONE thing.  Then TEST.  If it works, make a copy of the configuration (git is free), then repeat.

  Following this process would allow you discover for yourself that the source of this error is deleting "eap" from the "authenticate" section.  And, the error has nothing to do with certificates, because the words "TLS" or "certificate" don't appear in the error message.
