Chances are you have upgraded from stunnel 3.x to stunnel 4.x and you
need to adjust your stunnel.conf to the new format. Just guessing,
because I don't use Ubuntu, I only know it's Debian based.
Can you show your stunnel.conf? (show only the relevant parts if there
is lot of commentary in that file)
