Cannot create new certificate with multiple sans that contain two expired domains

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 goal is to renew the certificate that contains all the domains listed in the SAN for caesarstoneremnants.com except for our two expired domains www.zodiaqremnants.com
and zodiaqremnants.com and clean up the extra certificates that I accidently created in testing.

My domain is: stoneremnantsonline.com/

I ran this command: certbot renew

It produced this output: Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/cloud.stoneremnantsonline.com.conf


Cert is due for renewal, auto-renewing...

Hope this helps. My hope is renew the first certificate but to remove the www.zodiaqremnants.com and zodiaqremnants.com domains from the SAN. The other 3 certificates can be removed. I only created them as a test.

sudo certbot certificates
