I have been struggling with this problem for over an hour and can't resolve it myself. I'm trying to configure my IdP to verify the InCommon metadata and it's failing with the following error message. If I remove "requireSignedRoot="true"" it will download the data without warnings but I suspect it's not verified.

My setup is as follows:
