Let's Encrypt Expiry notice - even though certbot is set to auto renew

WordPress Let's Encrypt Ubuntu 18.04

Hi Everyone,
I am running on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS with a One-Click WordPress Droplet.

Today I received the message that my Let's Encrypt Certificate will expire soon and I need to update it. This is a bit confusing since certbot is set to auto renew

  • confirmed auto renew with success message ( sudo certbot renew --dry-run )
  • After "sudo certbot renew" I get the response: "Cert not yet due for renewal"

I don't fully understand what's happening. How can I confirm that my certificate doesn't expire soon?
