Attempting to renew cert failing

My domain is: https://slurpnet.com

I ran this command: $ sudo certbot renew --dry-run

It produced this output:

My web server is: Apache/2.4.25 (Debian)

The operating system my web server runs on is: Debian GNU/Linux 9.12 (stretch)

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: Google Cloud (Virtual Machine)

I can login to a root shell on my machine: Yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site: No

The version of my client is: certbot 0.28.0

Hi @redhazelgreen

that says:

Your Certbot is too old. An update is required.

Thank you.

I ran
sudo apt-get update
and
sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade certbot

Version is still certbot 0.28.0

Running sudo apt install python-certbot-apache gives me python-certbot-apache is already the newest version (0.28.0-1~deb9u1).

So either I’m doing something wrong with the updating procedure, or that is the latest version available for my system.
