#2

It appears that Apache is not running. Have you checked it? Is your website up?

Ok, checked that and Apache IS running though it is not serving your site. It is currently serving the Apache2 Ubuntu Default Page.

You need to properly configure Apache to serve your site before you can obtain certs.

Hello ciol

the tls-sni-01 - challenge is outdated. Use the http-01 or dns-01 - challenge. Perhaps update your certbot.
