Cannot renew domain

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: alexanderpicov.com

I ran this command:
root@videotron:/usr/local/www/apache24/data/picov # certbot

Which names would you like to activate HTTPS for?
We recommend selecting either all domains, or all domains in a VirtualHost/server block.

NEXT STEPS:

  • The certificate will need to be renewed before it expires. Certbot can automatically renew the certificate in the background, but you may need to take steps to enable that functionality. See User Guide — Certbot 2.11.0.dev0 documentation for instructions.

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
interxion
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):
no
The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):
certbot 2.8.0

please note that this problem has been solved by renewing it another way with certbot --renew so it's taken care of but it's not solved by doing it in this manner...

Please don't keep issuing new certificates when that is NOT the problem. Thank you.

Why do you keep selecting only "1"?
Aren't both names being serviced by the same vhost [that would be using the same cert]?

What shows?:
sudo apachectl -t -D DUMP_VHOSTS
