Error when requesting Let's Encrypt Cert


this is a first, as adding Let's Encryt Certs works usually flawlessly on our other boxes w. virtualmin...

Requesting a certificate for  [list w. domain names and alias domains goes here...] from Let's Encrypt ..
.. request failed : Web-based validation failed : Failed to request certificate :
Traceback (most recent call last):
  File "/usr/share/webmin/webmin/", line 250, in <module>
  File "/usr/share/webmin/webmin/", line 246, in main
    signed_crt = get_crt(args.account_key, args.csr, args.acme_dir, args.dns_hook, args.cleanup_hook, log=LOGGER,
  File "/usr/share/webmin/webmin/", line 196, in get_crt
    log.error("{0} challenge did not pass: {1}".format(domain, challenge_status['error']['detail']))
UnicodeEncodeError: 'ascii' codec can't encode character u'\u0103' in position 256: ordinal not in range(128)

As I never worked w. the Python , I do not have the slightest idea on how this could be solved :D

An IP belonging to Let's encrypt did show up in the logs though...

Please help, cheers! :)
