I’m generating an ecdsa server cert but am getting the following errors.. I’ve built with openssl.. what am I missing?

# swanctl --load-creds
loaded certificate from '/etc/swanctl/x509/vpnserver.crt'
loaded certificate from '/etc/swanctl/x509/vpnserver1.crt'
building CRED_PRIVATE_KEY - ANY failed, tried 4 builders
loaded private key from '/etc/swanctl/private/vpnserver.key'
loaded rsa key from '/etc/swanctl/private/vpnserver1.key’
