Apache is giving me an error after I installed it to domain without www

I'm a big-time beginner, and I have an appointment with someone on Tuesday to fix this. I really am hoping to solve it and learn in the process, though!

My domain is: medranosinc.com

I ran this command: sudo certbot --apache

It produced this output:

Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log
Error while running apache2ctl configtest.
Action 'configtest' failed.

My web server is: Google Cloud Console

The operating system my web server runs on is: Debian 10

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Google Cloud Console, Wordpress Click to Deploy

I can login to a root shell on my machine: idk

I'm using a control panel to manage my site: Wordpress Google Cloud Console

The version of my client is: certbot 1.28.0

Any idea where that file went to? It seems to be gone.
