Description (partial)

The CLI WEBSECURITYCONFIG  option for certificate set to 'System provided certificate'  blocks cloud certificate updates. 

Note the "Certificate 'System provided certificate' used." and "System provided certificate used." options under the command are not equal. 
The first will use a builtin certificate and will block cloud certificate updates while the second will allow the cloud to update the client certificate.
