Filezilla GnuTLS error -15: An unexpected TLS packet was received
Using a wildcard certificate to connect to a newly configured VSFTP server on CentOS on FTPes, I got the following error:

Error: GnuTLS error -15: An unexpected TLS packet was received.
Error: Could not connect to server
Since FTPes was not working, I decided to use plain FTP. That's when I realized my mistake.
I was using virtual users to connect and missed out on creating the folders on the server.
So I went ahead and created the required folders, changed the ownership and test again with plain FTP, it worked!
I switched back to FTPes and tested again and that worked too!
Bottom line: GnuTLS error may not necessarily be due to certificate errors.
