--bootstrap-version option to knife and the associated Chef::Config
parameter are only available in knife 0.9.16 and later. Also, by default,

If you upgrade your workstation to 0.9.16 you should see the behavior you
were expecting. If you are using knife 0.10.0, then you will need to provide
the --bootstrap-version option.

I have a number of chef nodes that are working fine but this one fails
