Most likely you've did something like

    listen 80 http2;

in your configuration, which results in HTTP/2 being used on port 
80, assuming prior knowledge.  Don't do this.

See for an example of 
another person who did the same mistake.

May be we need some better indication on what goes wrong here.  
I.e., something similar to 497 code we use internally for https 
("a regular request has been sent to the HTTPS port").
