Have you checked your domain using WHOIS? You must change your nameservers at your registrar and not at your current DNS provider.

The whois shows the correct nameservers. I’ve changed the nameservers at the registrar, they also told me that the problem is most likely with Cloudflare.

Nameservers are correct, but you seem to have a broken DNSSEC configuration.

You’d need to fix this at your registrar and provide the values indicated by Cloudflare.
