LetsEncrypt load balancer certificate stays pending

I’ve pointed the domain NS to DigitalOcean, and I’ve tried creating a certificate using LetsEncrypt via the UI.

I’ve waited for about an hour, and it’s still in a pending state. If I hover, a tooltip says: “Certificate generation is pending - waiting for a response from Let’s Encrypt.”

Is there a way I can check what’s going on?
