Certbot-auto crash while trying to update


Certbot-auto has been crashing on my home Ubuntu 16.04 computer when I try to run it since the 0.9.0 update. To be clear, it had been working fine on 0.8.1, but starting when I first ran it after 0.9.0 was released, it tries to do an update and crashes after checking the dependencies.

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

I ran this command: ./certbot-auto --version
