I think the error here in this case is related to you trying to spend coins with a segwit scrip/adress, while the wallet/server you are using doesn't recognize the script, and is thus unable to broadcast it.

Which is pretty weird, considering i also use Electrum segwit and never had any issues.

Try switching electrum servers, see if that does anything?

Thank you! Switching the server worked and I was able to broadcast the transaction.

Seems like either the server you were connected to was non-SegWit compatible (possibly an old version of Bitcoin Core or ElectrumX etc)... or it was out of sync.

Either way, good to see you managed to get it working.
