This indeed means it isn't bootstrapping. My first thought is that you
have some firewall or iptables rules or something preventing Tor from
reaching the network.

This warning could matter a lot -- did you build Tor yourself? In
any case, "your openssl install is broken" could be related to "your
Tor couldn't finish any SSL handshakes".

Blocking by your ISP possible, but usually it's some other issue.
