I’ve heard of Let’s Encrypt on the EFF about a month ago. After seeing that the certificates were now trusted, I wanted to give it a try on my website.
However, when trying to open the letsencrypt-auto script, I encounter this issue:
mlp@MyLittlePC ~/letsencrypt % ./letsencrypt-auto Updating letsencrypt and virtual environment dependencies...Traceback (most recent call last): File "/home/mlp/.local/share/letsencrypt/bin/pip", line 5, in <module> from pkg_resources import load_entry_point File "/home/mlp/.local/share/letsencrypt/local/lib/python2.7/site-packages/pkg_resources/__init__.py", line 21, in <module> import io File "/usr/lib/python2.7/io.py", line 51, in <module> import _io ImportError: No module named _io
I’ve googled it all my afternoon, but all I could find was some topics about Ubuntu update, and virtual environment (I don’t know what it is, nor have I ever created one).
I use Debian, and recently upgraded from 7 to 8 by changing the lines in my sources.list.
I don’t know if the update broke it or anything else.
Thanks for reading.
