Well, the one thing that's clear is "Invalid certificate received from server." You said it works on other systems, so most likely there isn't an *actual* problem with the certificate, so the question is why mono on the pi is rejecting it.

Can you print the URL? From another system, we can connect to the URL and look at the certificate chain, to see if there's some other possible cause of the problem ... like multiple intermediates, or signed by a root that isn't in the Mozilla list, or using EC keys, or supporting only up to SSLv3, or supporting only TLS >= 1.1. Any of these would be possible explanations, that will only be found by inspecting the cert from another system.

If there's a general problem with mono on the pi, can you try fetching some other URL, such as 
This is just a random HTTPS url for a small file you can fetch. So you have more clues to figure out the cause of the problem.

Did you check those directories?
To find out if you have root CA's installed, look in... (There's a distinct possibility these directories will be different for a raspberry pi ... I'm just not sure...)
