Renew certificate

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., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command: sudo certbot renew

It produced this output:

Attempting to parse the version 1.32.2 renewal configuration file found at /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/ with version 0.40.0 of Certbot. This might not work.

My web server is (include version):

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: google domain

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):

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): certbot 2.6.0

but the problem is when i try to renew my certificate using renew command it shows duplicate error and told me to retry after 2023-05-14. so next day when try using same method it shows same error and told me to retry after 2023-05-15. It runs like a loop so how can i renew my certificate and it is also mention that my certificate already expire in april 22,2023. So it is necessary to renew the certificate as soon as possible

Can you find a log file from the /var/log/letsencrypt/ directory from around May 5?

It looks like your Certbot has been renewing your certificate every day (or trying to) for the past few months. It may be the case that there is an issue with your Certbot installation which prevents the certificate from being properly saved, which results in excessively renewed certiifcates that don't get saved anywhere.
