Have you tried a different country code, one from this list:

SSL Certificate Country Codes - Create CSR | DigiCert.com

another country code has not resolved the issue.  Since its a fresh appliance i might just re-deploy, or use the older .ova that did work (this is 7.3)

What build number are you using, do you have any errors in the logs?

Your Country Code is invalid. Numbers are not used in country codes for CSRs, only two letter codes such as US, FR, GB, etc. This is probably why that's failing. Pick a country code from the list here instead.
