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. https://crt.sh/?q=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: vpnsr.us
I ran this command:certbot certonly --dns-cloudflare --dns-cloudflare-credentials /etc/letsencrypt/cloudflare.ini -d singapore-3.vpnsr.us
It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): ipsec
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): ubuntu
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes

I am trying to issue new certificate with the above command, no certs issued this week, still I get rate limit error. After going trough the document several times, I guess that it might be renewals, but I am not sure how that would be possible, since nothing is renewed this week.
Any hints are welcome,
