Let's Encrypt stopped working and can't renew

Let's Encrypt SSL cert (set to automatic renewal) I see "Time since last renewal 0.01 months"

When I try to request Certificate again I get the following error which I can't find any documentation on (though many similar). I've disabled the site's htaccess and stopped bind with no change.

Requesting a certificate for domain.com, www.domain.com, mail.domain.com from Let's Encrypt .. .. request failed : Failed to request certificate : Parsing account key... Parsing CSR... Registering account... Already registered! Verifying www.domain.com...

Make sure that your domain is externally resolvable via DNS, and that there is no firewall blocking port 80.

From the error, it sounds like the Let's Encrypt service is unable to connect to your server.

Thanks Jamie. I double-checked and saw that webmin was not the current version - upgrading this has resolved the issue.
