Can't Upgrade to latest version


Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g., so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

I ran this command: sudo apt-get upgrade python-certbot-nginx

It produced this output: python-certbot-nginx is already the newest version (0.25.0-2+ubuntu17.10.1+certbot+1).

My web server is (include version): nginx 1.12.1-0ubuntu2)

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Ubuntu 17.10

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: n/a

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know): yes

I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you’re using Certbot): certbot 0.22.2

Followed steps from this page:

sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
sudo add-apt-repository universe sudo add-apt-repository ppa:certbot/certbot
sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install python-certbot-nginx


Ubuntu Artful has been EOL since July. The PPA will no longer have new packages for it. It probably no longer has any packages for it.

You should upgrade Ubuntu.


Until you do upgrade Ubuntu (very top of the TODO list), you might be able to use certbot-auto


After upgrading from 17.10 to 18.04, certbot upgraded easily to the newest version.

Love it when it’s easy, thanks!!

Since 17.10 is a choice in the drop down I would have never thought that to be the problem and would’ve been chasing my tail for hours.
