Certbot-auto goes to curses (color) app in terminal and it's scrambled

I am trying to install a certificate using letsencrypt.org on my Digital Ocean server for Wordpress for my company. When I try the command “./certbot-auto --apache -d ciwise.com -d www.ciwise.com” and it starts a curses (color) app I think and it’s scrambled. I can’t read any of it.

I’m using Debian 8 but the install instructions for certbot-auto with “apt-get install” did not work. Couldn’t find any packages. I switched to debian other instructions and used “wget” to get the software. I was able to run the software install and it said it installed it but ended with the curses app.

Can someone help?
