Hi @chandresh,

There is a renewal failure for a specific reason, but we can't see the reason for this error message. This error just says that you're repeatedly trying (unsuccessfully) to renew the certificate and that you have to wait an hour before you can try again.

You can find the reason for the earlier failures in your logs in /var/log/letsencrypt. Or wait an hour and try again, noting the underlying reason for the failed renewal attempt.

Separately from this:

You have two partly overlapping certificates managed by Certbot, which may not be what you intended. You can see their contents by running certbot certificates and figure out whether one or both is preferable to the other.
