Our issue was expired certificates in the RD server set-up which were interfering with the system even though in IIS they were all up-to-date and the server was working fine.

So under server manager we went into the RD settings and then highlighted the deployment and under tasks chose 'edit deployment properties' and went to the certificates page:

Here we chose the new certificate, one-by-one, to replace the expired certificates:

And then applied each certificate replacement before attempting the next.

Once all the certificates were showing as status OK, we re-published the RemoteApp settings:

And the publish now suceeds:

My problem was that the digital certificate that had been imported into the iis was different from the RDS digital certificate
The same error occurred
Your post gave me north where to review
