Not getting cert using acmetool

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:
obstoclades.biz
I ran this command:
acmetool --xlog.severity=debug
It produced this output:

Hi @dls welcome to the community....
OK so acmetool is not in my repertoire. Although I am a freebsd fan.
Have you looked at:
https://wiki.freebsd.org/BernardSpil/LetsEncrypt#Install_Letsencrypt.sh
It might help.

If, as appears to be the case, your server can't connect to itself using its public IP address (maybe due to not having hairpin NAT on your home network), then I can suggest either:

I would note also that I'm pretty sure that acmetool is abandonware. Although it seems that some distros have chosen to package the ACMEv2 beta, I don't think the author has responded to any issues in a long time. Unfortunate - I was a happy user too.
