I think this has been reported in the past couple of times, but I have
not been able to reproduce the issue myself and as such, I'm not sure
what exactly is causing it. For some reason, wpa_supplicant might not be
able to find the network configuration block which could happen, e.g.,
if the driver does not report the association properly.

I would need to see a full debug log (with -ddt on the command line)
from the very beginning to the point where this error shows up to try to
figure out what could be causing the problem.
