Where does the root of your domain resolve to on the internet?
This looks like the problem we are seeing more of, where the public web site has an Autodiscover entry on it which confuses things.

In most cases the root of the domain resolves to the public web site, and you use autodiscover.example.com for Autodiscover purposes.
However if https://example.com/Autodiscover/Autodiscover.xml works for some reason (even if it is giving wrong information) then it stops the process from moving on to the next step.
