Wow, I have been banging my head on a wall trying to get an AP added to our WLC since 12/6 (the same day as the bug). Re-image the AP, factory reset, converted to Auto mode and back to Lightweight. Then I noticed the cert error on the console log. Google brought me here. Reset time to Jan 2022 and the AP joined! Thanks for posting this question and thanks for the work-around! Now I have a couple of days to catch up on...
