Hi iantsai,

This error means that your Let's Encrypt configuration is still pointing to an old API server, it can be caused by:

  • You currently have an old cert issued for this domain. Check this file: /etc/letsencrypt/renewal/domain.com.conf and look for the "server" value, you should have API v2 server to support the wildcard feature, https://acme-v02.api.letsencrypt.org/directory. You can also check the /etc/letsencrypt/cli.ini file to see if you have configured a server as default.
  • You have an old certbot version installed in your server. You should update and upgrade your server.

Please, tell me if it works for you.
