Currently, Let's Encrypt considers sp.gov.br a single domain (like, for example, google.com.br), so it is rate limited to 20 new certificates per week.

This was fixed earlier today; Let's Encrypt will probably deploy updated software in the next couple weeks.

Until then, there's nothing you can do except retry occasionally and hopefully get a certificate in under the rate limit. You can use lectl or some other Certificate Transparency log monitor to calculate when the next chance is, but someone else could still beat you to the punch.
