The nuances of emacs packages are beyond me, so i guess we're even ;)

presumably the list of packages available at each repository is fetched
over a TLS connection (if you used https).  If the connection to the
repository fails (due to TLS or other failures) this is what the warning
is about.

that sounds like an issue for emacs folks, more than for gnutls folks,
as long as gnutls is properly reporting the failure up to emacs.

are you sure there are no other package sources available?
