Resolution

Before issuing the DCI9980E error message, the Agent returned these ones also:

20220604 093445  DCI2100I: INIT: RETRIEVE CPC INFORMATION                        
20220604 093445  DCI0999E: ERROR HWILIST  : (00000000/00000F02)                  
20220604 093445  DCI0999E: ERROR HWILIST  : 00000000 00000000 00000000 00000000  
20220604 093445  DCI2197W: DCI AGENT GOT NO CPC INFORMATION..                    
20220604 093445  DCI2199W: DCI AGENT NOT SET UP TO HANDLE HMC REQUESTS.     

So HWILIST callable service got a return code F02, which, per IBM documentation (HWILIST — Retrieve HMC and BCPii configuration-related information) means that "The user does not have correct SAF authorization for the request." (HWI_NO_SAF_AUTH).      
On the DCI 2.0 documentation, there is a section dealing with the external security requirements for DCI agents: Configure Security for BCPii Enabled Agents
