Unable to pick challenge type

Hello - I am using letsencrypt staging and getting following while getting the certificate -

error picking challenge type to use for domain ‘www.myspaceti.me’: no configured and supported challenge type found, error waiting for key to be available for domain “myspaceti.me”: context deadline exceeded

Can someone explain what does it mean and how can i get around this?

Thanks!

When you created this post, there were several questions, such as what command you ran, the exact output of that command, your domain name, operating system, etc.

Without the answers to those, it’s very difficult for anyone here to support you. Could you please provide that information for us?

Here are more logs from the container that is managing certificates

Warning ErrorCheckCertificate 7h (x2 over 7h) cert-manager-controller Error checking existing TLS certificate: secret “myspacetime-tls” not found

This still isn’t helpful without context. Please complete the following questions as best you can:

My domain is:

I ran this command:

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version):

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

My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

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):

I also think it would be helpful to fill in these questions.

This problem is likely related to

Looks like they are using this K8S addon

From a quick glance it doesn’t appear to have ever supported TLS-SNI.
