Extra details

Can enter my Nextcloud with my iPhone via DynuDNS-Address with wlan or LTE but not on my iPad with WLAN (no LTE Modul). but not working on annother PC from outside my Network.

may have found the reason why the Dynu-address didnt work.
router needed a reset and got a new IP4.
IPhone must have used ip6.
Why it didnt got updated with the cronjob i have to figure out too. Great.

Maybe you can try to uninstall Certbot and install it again afterwards

removed certbot, autoremove, reboot, installed certbot.
Still the same error massage.

CAn you confirm that you have the Python package josepy?
pip install josepy

 pip install josepy
Requirement already satisfied: josepy in /usr/lib/python3/dist-packages (1.2.0)

tryed to reinstall Certbot. Nginx still failing zu start

best to remove SSL configuration from Nginx for time being as a workaround.

wasnt expecting an answer here so i restored a backup.
updated to 9.0.2?.
seems to work now.

but there is/was nothing in the update related to certbot

i never said the update caused the problem.
since my cert was running out and the tips so far didnt work i tryed to reinstall certbot, hoping it would fix the letsencrypt script.
instead it broke the server.

to solve that i decided to restore the backup. Luckily it worked
