Virtualmin: Failed to request certificate

I installed Virtumin on a new CentOS 7 VPS (from the beginning), I requested a new SSL certificate for my domain and got the following error:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/usr/libexec/webmin/webmin/”, line 198, in

Please guide me how to to resolve this issue. Thank You!
