There's a rather clear error message in your screenshot. Does your .ovpn file has both entries for "cert" and "key" ?

If not, then that's the issue. If the entries are there, then it might be a bug.

Yes, both are there but somehow the key is removed once the connection is saved. Also after manually adding the key later, it is removed immediately when I click save again.

This happened both on my fully upgraded 2017 and a fresh installed 2018.1 kali version, both using network-manager-openvpn-gnome v1.8.0-2 on a KVM virtual machine.

This is probably fixed by this upstream commit: https://git.gnome.org/browse/network-manager-openvpn/commit/?id=fcf4b58fe0da5994687469ebb0c6eac3cf083e83

The patch will soon land in Debian unstable. We will likely wait for it and grab the package once available.

any expectation when this will happen, have had this issue for several weeks now (6 or more)

I just imported network-manager-openvpn 1.8.2-1 from Debian unstable. It should be available shortly in kali-rolling.
