The remote peer sends that. Pay attention to the exact order of events and what they say.
Try limiting the sent set to only the configured proposal by appending an exclamation mark
at the end of the cipher list. Maybe the software of the remote peer is broken in some way
in the cipher selection.

A remote peer can also send that message when it can't find a matching configuration,
besides the cipher suites.
