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:
ziitronemedia.ca -- registered with namecheap
I ran this command:
sudo certbot --nginx --agree-tos --redirect --hsts --staple-ocsp --email [myemailaddrs] -d ziitronemedia.ca
It produced this output:
sudo certbot --nginx --agree-tos --redirect --hsts --staple-ocsp --email [myemail] -d ziitronemedia.ca

Requesting a certificate for ziitronemedia.ca
Certbot failed to authenticate some domains (authenticator: nginx). The Certificate Authority reported these problems:
Detail: no valid A records found for ziitronemedia.ca; no valid AAAA records found for ziitronemedia.ca
Hint: The Certificate Authority failed to verify the temporary nginx configuration changes made by Certbot. Ensure the listed domains point to this nginx server and that it is accessible from the internet.

? I am hosting a Jellyfin server on a dedicated machine, latest version 10.8.9.

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
no, I dont think so. Only using terminal to control ubuntu server machine
The version of my client is (e.g. output of
certbot --version or
certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot):
I am a complete noob to networking and am trying to get a valid SSL certificate for https to make my media server more secure and preferable. I've been hopping around guides to get through it, but I am now stuck here. I have an A Record set in namecheap's advanced DNS page, and I tried temporarily port forwarding 443 and 80 to see if that helped, but it still does not verify. I am not sure what I am doing wrong. I haven't set anything up to deal with a Dynamic IP address yet but wanted to get this working first. The command I am running is just right off Jellyfin's website.
