The client lacks sufficient authorization

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. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: myraspi-jm.xyz, myraspi-wp.xyz,gerald-brown.tech

I ran this command:sudo certbot --nginx

It produced this output:Failed authorization procedure. myraspi-jm.xyz (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: Invalid response from http://myraspi-jm.xyz/.well-known/acme-challenge/WXklNaU45cgou_E2ECEaImxAGfy0wFX7y3FgcKxxJus [167.172.216.55]: 503, www.myraspi-jm.xyz (http-01): urn:ietf:params:acme:error:unauthorized :: The client lacks sufficient authorization :: Invalid response from http://www.myraspi-jm.xyz/.well-known/acme-challenge/U4sj3_g5nVLHLl_66AczKrIbUsS27IlbrfvXL9VYNtA [167.172.216.55]: 503

My web server is (include version):nginx/1.14.2

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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): no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): o.31.0

Hi @gerbreown

your server answers with a http status 503 - Server Error.

That’s wrong.

Looks like your configuration is buggy, fix it. That’s not a Letsencrypt problem, you must have a working port 80.
