Certbot renew Issue

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: gorx.org

I ran this command: sudo certbot renew

It produced this output: Challenge failed for domain gorx.org
Challenge failed for domain www.gorx.org
http-01 challenge for gorx.org
http-01 challenge for www.gorx.org

Attempting to renew cert (gorx.org) from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/gorx.org.conf produced an unexpected error: Some challenges have failed.. Skipping.
