I just was trying to add SSL certificate to the cyberpanel of my domain!!
What I can do now to fix it ?

@macroezzat I just want to add that you have 17 (!) valid certs outstanding

You have a serious problem with your config which I am sure @9peppe can help you with

Just find one valid key/certificate pair for your domain, and install it manually with a copypaste.

I don't know how cyberpanel works, but if it works like this I am not sure anybody should be using it.

Please notice that the certificates you get with certbot and the certificates cyberpanel gets with its internal acme client are in two different directories on your server. Right now I have no will to investigate cyberpanel, but you should read its documentation to learn where those certificates are, and install them.

after searching I have got this info :

[Sun 01 May 2022 02:46:59 PM UTC] Your cert is in: /root/.acme.sh/ccsouq.com/ccsouq.com.cer
[Sun 01 May 2022 02:46:59 PM UTC] Your cert key is in: /root/.acme.sh/ccsouq.com/ccsouq.com.key
[Sun 01 May 2022 02:46:59 PM UTC] The intermediate CA cert is in: /root/.acme.sh/ccsouq.com/ca.cer
[Sun 01 May 2022 02:46:59 PM UTC] And the full chain certs is there: /root/.acme.sh/ccsouq.com/fullchain.cer
[Sun 01 May 2022 02:46:59 PM UTC] Installing cert to: /etc/letsencrypt/live/ccsouq.com/cert.pem
[Sun 01 May 2022 02:46:59 PM UTC] Installing key to: /etc/letsencrypt/live/ccsouq.com/privkey.pem

[Sun 01 May 2022 02:46:59 PM UTC] _on_issue_success

but I don't know how I can access cert location to copy it or installing location to paste it?

Did you actually use acme.sh to write in certbot directories?

Why would you do that?

Anyhow. Your certificate and key should be there.

Sorry I don't know everything so I am asking here
How I can access cert location to copy it or installing location to paste it?

These questions are best for your hosting provider. They setup the cyberpanel and should be able to help you.

What you're doing is delicate and can be dangerous if you get it wrong. There's too much I don't know about your system to guide you safely.

Please check the proper documentation.
