Cant renew certificate - getting errors

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

My domain

I ran this command:letsencrypt renew --dry-run --agree-tos

It produced this output:Processing /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/
2016-11-29 14:53:56,278:WARNING:letsencrypt.client:Registering without email!
2016-11-29 14:53:56,781:WARNING:letsencrypt.cli:Attempting to renew cert from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/ produced an unexpected error: [Errno 2] No such file or directory. Skipping.
** DRY RUN: simulating ‘letsencrypt renew’ close to cert expiry

All renewal attempts failed. The following certs could not be renewed:

My operating system is (include version):Ubuntu 16.04 LTS (Desktop)

My web server is (include version):Server version: Apache/2.4.18 (Ubuntu)

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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

What is in the conf file … /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/ ? and do the files it refers to exist ?

(edit / change your email before posting)
