Can you show the exact command you ran that resulted in this output?

The command would start with certbot or certbot-auto or letsencrypt-auto or something like that. I can’t see it on that screenshot - you may need to scroll up more in your terminal.

The problem is that your website doesn’t appear to be served from your nominated webroot (/var/www/html/shopys).

Could you create an empty file file: /var/www/html/shopys/.well-known/acme-challenge/test.txt and then verify that you can access is in the web browser as http://shopysport.com/.well-known/acme-challenge/test.txt ?

That is basically what is required in order for Certbot succeed to issue a certificate - Certbot will put a file in that directory and then Let’s Encrypt tries to fetch it via direct URL. In your case, it is failing.

emacs .well-known/acme-challenge/test.txt
