This error is normally hit when your process account (app pool account) is either wrong or does not have proper rights to the (config) database. To fix, check your central admin app pool identity and ensure it is correct (e.g. if you are setting up a farm which has SQL on a seperate box, the app pool identity cannot be "Network Service"). Once you fix this issue, you should be good.
