The same error can occur in an attempt to secure Plesk.
A domain name or hostname is blacklisted.
Let's Encrypt policy does not allow issuing a certificate for such domain name or hostname.
If the domain name is blacklisted, e.g. *.cloudapp.net or *.amazonaws.com, then Let's Encrypt fails to issue a certificate.
Change the domain name to another one:
Go to Domains > Hosting Settings.
Change the Domain name to another one and press the OK button to apply changes.
