A certificate and AAAA certificate is not found by certbot

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. crt.sh | example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: www.mnitmeteor.com

I ran this command: sudo certbot --nginx

It produced this output: Certbot failed to authenticate some domains (authenticator: nginx). The Certificate Authority reported these problems:
Domain: mnitmeteor.com
Type: dns
Detail: no valid A records found for mnitmeteor.com; no valid AAAA records found for mnitmeteor.com

Hint: The Certificate Authority failed to verify the temporary nginx configuration changes made by Certbot. Ensure the listed domains point to this nginx server and that it is accessible from the internet.

Some challenges have failed.
Ask for help or search for solutions at https://community.letsencrypt.org. See the logfile /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log or re-run Certbot with -v for more details.

My web server is (include version): nginx/1.18.0 (Ubuntu)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): ubuntu 20

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: digitalocean

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):ubuntu server

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): certbot 1.27.0

I have checked in various dns checker sites that my website has both A and AAAA certificates. please help

That's true for the www subdomain, but not for the apex domain mnitmeteor.com.
