Certbot renewal - trying a Challenge on a deleted domain

I have deleted the domain - acamfdmsstage.centrico.in
and when i run the command certbot --apache renew

$ certbot --apache renew
It produced this output:
http-01 challenge for acamfdmsstage.centrico.in
Challenge failed for domain acamfdmsstage.centrico.in

However, i have removed every trace of the domain from my system.
ls -lR /etc/letsencrypt/ | grep acamfdmsstage grep -r acamfdmsstage /etc/letsencrypt
ls -lR /etc/httpd/conf.d | grep acamfdmsstage grep -r acamfdmsstage /etc/httpd/conf.d/

all above commands are empty

so the question is where does the command
$ certbot --apache renew
find an entry for acamfdmsstage.centrico.in

My domain is: acamfdmsstage.centrico.in
My web server is (include version): Server version: Apache/2.4.43 (Fedora)
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Fedora Core 31
My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Linode
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Yes
The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): certbot 1.4.0

Thanks. Yashesh

Hi @yasheshb

if you have that result, you have a certificate.

What says

certbot certificates

Then use the delete command to delete the certificate.

Hi. Thank you @JuergenAuer
was able to find the spurious certificate and delete it.
Much appreciated.
