Hi Sreeja,
It seems like your private key and/or the ssl certificate you use to auth
does not exist. If you are indeed using key-pair based authentication, make
sure you have the key "signing_key.pem" at the mentioned location, i.e. at

If this doesn't help, can you then just share a bit more on your setup.
