I received the "PEM_read_bio:no start line" error when I did not include the private key in the pure-ftpd.pem file.
Pure FTP expects the pem file to be named pure-ftpd.pem and to include the private key. Mine uses the following format with a Digicert public certificate:
-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
<the private key that you created for pure-ftp>
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
<server certificate>
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
<Digicert Intermediate CA (DigicertCA.crt)>
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE-----
<Root CA (TrustedRoot.crt)>
-----END CERTIFICATE-----
Probably too late for this thread, but hope this helps others.
