I'm betting it's the cipher being used ECDHE-RSA-AES256-SHA. OpenSSL says

There is a big list of blacklisted ciphers in the RFC
You will find that cipher on the list.

I have no real recommendation for you but the RFC states all 
implementations must support
TLS_ECDHE_RSA_WITH_AES_128_GCM_SHA256 or OpenSSL's equivalent 
So it's a starting point.

Happy http/2-ing,
