It produced this output:

Only timeouts. If you want to use webroot, a working port 80 is required.

But you have a certificate.

Issuer not before not after Domain names LE-Duplicate next LE
Let’s Encrypt Authority X3 2020-04-06 2020-07-05 ards.dev, www.ards.dev - 2 entries duplicate nr. 1

So use it.
