Looks like you have problems with CRLs.
My suggestions.
1. Your new CA's certificate includes invalid CDPs (check with certutil
  -url <newCAcert filename>. If so - correct CDPs at your offline root
and reissue certificate for your CA.
2. CRL of your offline root also expired! Reissue CRL at offline root
and republish it to your CDPs.

With best regards
