Actually, you had already sent a debug log in a previous message. The
problem was indeed in configuring multiple protocols for ap_scan=2.
Since wpa_supplicant does not get scan results in this case, it will
just pick one proto (RSN) and try to use it. In other words, with
ap_scan=2, the security policy has to be explicitly configured (this
includes proto and ciphers).
