Authentication is failing

I'm trying to obtain certificate for my domain (I can't share it).
The server is vanilla Ubuntu 20.04 with Nginx and Gunicorn running.
I can view the website just fine but when I run:
sudo certbot --nginx -d

I get:

   To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
   entered correctly and the DNS A/AAAA record(s) for that domain
   contain(s) the right IP address.

The DNS records appears to be correct. I'm using forwarding with masking for the domain. Meaning Godaddy is making the public ip to look like

certbot version 0.40.0

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi @codinghedgehog-pytho

your domain name is required if you want help.

is a GoDaddy ip address, - you can't create a certificate using that GoDaddy forwarding.
