It looks like Bitwarden's docker instance is unable to connect to the Let's Encrypt API.

There have been a couple of service disruptions today; I'm not sure how they would have manifested exactly, but it might be worth simply trying again later.

In case that's not it: do you have a firewall or anything blocking outgoing connections from that server?

You might also try the Bitwarden forum if you haven't already.
