I can't renew ssl

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: https://dashboard.hohonu.io/

I ran this command: sudo certbot certonly --dry-run --nginx -d dashboard.hohonu.io

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): nginx/1.18.0

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 20.04.1

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: aws

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): aws

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): certbot 0.40.0

Hi @kingbar1990 and welcome to the LE community forum :slight_smile:

Please show the output of:
sudo nginx -t

And if that doesn't show any errors, then show the output of:
sudo nginx -T

[if it did show errors, then you may need to fix them before proceeding]


Please follow the recommended snap version of certbot installation:
Certbot - Ubuntufocal Nginx (eff.org)

[and be sure to remove the apt version of certbot now installed]
