Failure Renew certificates


#1

I ran this command:
/var/ssl_cert/certbot-auto renew --dry-run
or
/var/ssl_cert/certbot-auto renew --force-renewal --standalone --preferred-challenges http

It produced this output:

What does /var/ssl_cert/certbot-auto --version say?

Hi,

Please try the following command:
/var/ssl_cert/certbot-auto renew --force-renewal -a standalone --preferred-challenges http (In renewal, you would need to specify standalone by setting an Authenticator.
