Cert-Manager does not issue a certificate

I have been trying to deploy a cluster with nextcloud following this guide from DO

How to Set Up an Nginx Ingress with Cert-Manager on DigitalOcean Kubernetes

I get to a point where I can get HTTP working with dns pointed to EXTERNAL-IP, but when I try to roll out production issuer it gets stuck in the following state

And my service has a Kubernetes Ingress Controller Fake Certificate

I can’t pass through this step


Same problem here, since I upgrade my cluster from 1.10 to 1.16 without solution.

Now I try to start from scratch and I have the same problem. cluster in 1.16.2-do.3 and cert-manager 0.12.0…

All domains are in state “Waiting for CertificateRequest”

Do you see any helpful events in the namespace that describe what that request is waiting on kubectl get events?
