I have an issue where certbot-auto is not able to install required Python packages.
This last worked 2 days ago without any problems.
I’m running this on server running:
No LSB modules are available.
Distributor ID: Debian
Description: Debian GNU/Linux 9.6 (stretch)
To obtain certbot-auto, I have been using this:
wget https://dl.eff.org/certbot-auto -O /root/certbot-auto
and now also this:
git clone https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt
And both of them are resulting same exception while installing python packages.
I ran this:
:~/letsencrypt# ./certbot-auto -v certonly
and It produced this output: (stripped down due too many links in post)

Had a problem while installing Python packages.
So I can’t get the certbot-auto working at all.
I have done this hundreds of times, but this is the first time i’m having thkis kind of problems. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
