Problems with provisioning Central Administration site to SharePoint 2013 server

We have some problems with reprovisioning the Central Administration site to our Central Admin Server. Our customer is running SharePoint 2013 farm on-premises.

Some error information about the problem:

06/27/2021 23:40:04 11 INF Leaving function StringResourceManager.GetResourceString
06/27/2021 23:40:04 11 ERR Failed to provision the SharePoint Central Administration Web Application.
An exception of type System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException was thrown. Additional exception information: The given key was not present in the dictionary.
System.Collections.Generic.KeyNotFoundException: The given key was not present in the dictionary.
at System.ThrowHelper.ThrowKeyNotFoundException()
at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.get_Item(TKey key)
at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.CentralAdministrationSiteTask.ProvisionAdminVs()
at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.CentralAdministrationSiteTask.Run()
at Microsoft.SharePoint.PostSetupConfiguration.TaskThread.ExecuteTask()


Because of some critical certificates we are not able to create a new server. So we tried to search for a solution. But we couldn't find it yet.

Is someone familiar with this problem in SharePoint 2013?
