Hi I have seen few of this questions in here. but they all point to different errors. I tried all of the answers provided to those questions but didnt manage to get my ssl cert working.
I have managed to get the certbot working in the past so the ssl cert has already been installed. I can access the website with no problem.
One change that happened today, I reset my router which means I had to do the port forwarding again, I use noip.com to make my ip some what static.
My domain is:
I ran this command:
sudo certbot renew --dry-run
sudo certbot --nginx
It produced this output:
Attempting to renew cert (mystuff.lucasds.dev) from /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/mystuff.lucasds.dev.conf produced an unexpected error:

All renewal attempts failed. The following certs could not be renewed:

To fix these errors, please make sure that your domain name was
entered correctly and the DNS A/AAAA record(s) for that domain
contain(s) the right IP address. Additionally, please check that
your computer has a publicly routable IP address and that no
firewalls are preventing the server from communicating with the
client. If you’re using the webroot plugin, you should also verify
that you are serving files from the webroot path you provided.
My web server is (include version):
I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):
