I am using an Arch Linux setup and am having trouble connecting to my school's wifi using networkmanager. I'm using the nmcli connection editor to set up my system connection.

This is what my network file looks like:

[connection]
id=MYID
uuid=MY_UUID
type=wifi
interface-name=wlp3s0

[wifi]
mode=infrastructure
ssid=MY_SSID

[wifi-security]
key-mgmt=wpa-eap

[802-1x]
ca-cert=/etc/ca-certificates/trust-source/anchors/ca.crt
eap=peap;
identity=USERNAME
password=PASSWORD
phase2-auth=mschapv2

[ipv4]
dns-search
method=auto

[ipv6]
addr-gen-mode=stable-privacy
dns-seach=
method=auto

When I try to activate the connection, it is stuck on

Passwords or encryption keys are required to access the wireless network 'SSID'.
connecting (need authentication)

before returning: 'Error: Connection activation failed.'

Here is the output from journalctl -ex (often times it says failed to provide secrets that were required).
