Cause

The intermediate certificate was using SHA-1 and the SSL certificate used by Mobility Suite has been issued with SHA-256.

Resolution

Run the Opensssl to verify the Mobility Suite server SSL certificate:

openssl s_client -showcerts -connect appcenterMDM.appcenter.com:443

The output of this command, showed an issue with the intermediate certificate. After replaced it with SHA-256, the end users could sign in within the Work Hub agent without any issue.
