Installing Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi, I am facing issued when trying to create a letsencrypt certificate.
The ip address I added to my DynDNS provider (spdyn.de) is the ip address I found out by typing into a webbrowser “ifconfig.me” from my computer, not the raspberry. But it should be the same because this should be the public ip address of my router right? In my router (FritzBox) I granted access to the local ip address of my pi (192.168.178.35) for port 80 and 443.
I followed this instruction for setting up Nextcloud on a Raspberry Pi: https://canox.net/2016/06/die-eigene-cloud-mit-dem-raspberry-pi-und-nextcloud/
I do not know, why creating the certificates is failing. However, I am new to these topics and can not verify, if I setted up my DynDNS correctly.
My domain is:

To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
entered correctly and the DNS A/AAAA record(s) for that domain
contain(s) the right IP address. Additionally, please check that
your computer has a publicly routable IP address and that no
firewalls are preventing the server from communicating with the
client. If you’re using the webroot plugin, you should also verify
that you are serving files from the webroot path you provided.
Your account credentials have been saved in your Certbot
configuration directory at /etc/letsencrypt. You should make a
secure backup of this folder now. This configuration directory will
also contain certificates and private keys obtained by Certbot so
making regular backups of this folder is ideal.

I do not know how the get that information from my raspberry. However, during the setup process I executed this command:

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
I can log in using PUTTY and ssh, but only with the user “pi”.
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
