qiskit.providers.ibmq.exceptions.IBMQBackendApiError: 'Error submitting job:.... (Caused by SSLError(SSLError(1, \'[SSL: WRONG_VERSION_NUMBER] wrong version number (_ssl.c:1056)....
I used a basic Qiskit tutorial within a Conda environment, Python3.7, Ubuntu 18. The was no problem getting it to load account with token and display the following:
ibmq_qasm_simulator has 0 queued and simulated qubits ibmqx2 has 241 queued and 5 qubits ibmq_16_melbourne has 3681 queued and 15 qubits ibmq_vigo has 393 queued and 5 qubits ibmq_ourense has 507 queued and 5 qubits ibmq_valencia has 0 queued and 5 qubits ibmq_armonk has 3 queued and 1 qubits ibmq_athens has 13 queued and 5 qubits ibmq_santiago has 17 queued and 5 qubits
This is the section of code which generated the error:
from qiskit.tools.monitor import job_monitor backend = provider.get_backend('ibmq_qasm_simulator') config = backend.configuration() job = q.execute(circuit, backend, shots=10) job_monitor(job)
I found one reference to the issue being on their cloud and it suggested using a VPN or different Network. I also setup an IBM cloud account, but there does not appear to be a way to incorporate that into qiskit. The next thing I tried was seeing if the IP address of their cloud link being called would work just in a simple browser window along the lines of a suggestion about safe.io intercepting the SSL on Macs.
I also tried a few things related to OpenSSL and reinstalling that bit etc... no luck. The qiskit package was installed using PIP within Conda.
