Certbot Error renew

Hello

All of a sudden my certbot container is no longer renew my certificates. I am getting failed to verify TXT records using cloudflare.
In log error is following:

Certbot failed to authenticate some domain (cloudflare) The certificate authority reported these problems
Domain: xxxxxx
Type about:blank
Detail none

Was working fine last month and made no changes to my cloudflare account.

I'm running this on SWAG container in docker.

Certbot v 2.6.0

That's a very unusual error. We normally see some description of the failure.

Is it a renew command that is failing? If so, can you show result of this

certbot renew --dry-run

You'll need to run that in your container

If not a renew command that is failing, please show the certbot command

Even better would be if you could upload the /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log file described in the full error message

Hi
It's renewal
Here is log
log.txt (5.3 KB)

That doesn't look like letsencrypt.log, which is usually WAY more verbose.

sorry wrong file here is correct one
letsencrypt.txt (26.0 KB)

You're using ZeroSSL as CA, not Let's Encrypt. This unusual error is from ZeroSSLs ACME server, so you probably need to address this with them.

OR
Switch CAs.

If you do, please be sure to do all testing in the testing environment first.
