    Hi @Jashpinder Singh Gill ,

    Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

    Operating system error 12002(failed to retrieve text for this error. Reason: 15100)

    If you have received this error 12002 on your PC, it means that there was a malfunction in your system operation. Error code "error 12002" is one of the issues that users may get as a result of incorrect or failed installation or uninstallation of software that may have left invalid entries in system elements. Other potential causes may include improper system shutdown, such as due to a power failure, someone with little technical knowledge accidentally deleting a necessary system file or system element entry, as well as a number of other factors.

    The following steps should help fix the issue:
    Download Outbyte PC Repair application
    Install and launch the application
    Click the Scan Now button to detect potential issue causes
    Click the Repair All button to fix detected abnormalities
    The same application can be used to run preventative measures to reduce the chance of this or other system issues appearing in the future.

    I was able to resolve it by getting a valid signed TLS certificate from the S3-Object Storage and loading it inside the Trusted Root Certificate Authority within the SQL Server Windows OS.
