Privkey.pem is empty after generating a new certificate

Never mind- found the permissions error.

My domain is: ftp.nyc.arcadeedit.com

I ran this command:
files:renewal actualize1$ sudo certbot certonly
Saving debug log to /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log

IMPORTANT NOTES:

 - Congratulations! Your certificate and chain have been saved at:
   /etc/letsencrypt/live/ftp.nyc.arcadeedit.com/fullchain.pem
   Your key file has been saved at:
   /etc/letsencrypt/live/ftp.nyc.arcadeedit.com/privkey.pem
   Your cert will expire on 2019-04-08.}

My web server is (include version): Rumpus
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Mac OSX 10.12.6
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): Yes

When I look inside the fullchain.pem I see all the expected text, but privkey.pem-while created-is showing as an empty file. The above was the second attempt at creating the certificate. Both times, nothing in privkey.pem.
