Ubuntu one fails to authenticate from my new Ubuntu 12.04 64 bit installation but I can access my account from a browser.

I've tried resetting the password several times and I've also tried reinstalling ubuntu one as per the directions given in the ubuntu one website.

Any help is appreciated.

The most likely cause of this is error is the root SSL certificate for is not completely installed on your computer.

Please open the terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T);

sudo apt-get install --reinstall ca-certificates

Logout and login (Restart preferred) and Try UbuntuOne account once more.
