While I’ve never encountered this error before, it sounds like you may have limited SSL configuration in a way that is preventing certbot from working. I would recommend walking back some of your SSL configuration. Perhaps consider commenting out SSLCipherSuite and SSLProtocol in your configuration, restarting Apache, and then running certbot again.
