The trouble here is that wpa_cli is unable to establish connection with wpa_supplicant - unable to open the control socket.

Braiam suggested in the comments that if wpa_supplicant@wlan0 doesn't exist, I may need to create it myself, and also pointed me to a page in the Arch Linux wiki describing how to do so.

I know thats not 'the Anwser', and also a bit late - But its to large for a comment. Maybe it helps... My Configuration was not wrong, it just took to long to connect and caused a timeout, setting explicit values speeded it up and the autentication was finished in time. Try to do so with eapol_flags and eap, try disabling eap_workaround or fast_reauth. ...
