is the PMG setup as a lxc container?

It seems that:
* you have configured certbot as ACME certificate
* you have configured certbot to use /root/ at some point in it's deployment task
* the /root/ in the version you're having is not suited to run inside a container

put shortly:
* fix your certbot deployment - or maybe even simpler:
* use PMG's ACME implementation

I hope this helps!
