After following https://backports.debian.org/Instructions/ and https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/debianstretch-other the command
apt-get install certbot -t stretch-backports fails:
Der Wert »stretch-backports« ist für APT::Default-Release ungültig, da solch eine Veröffentlichung in den Paketquellen nicht verfügbar ist.
-bash: Der: Kommando nicht gefunden.
And the translated error message is:
»stretch-backports« is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources
Any idea what happens here?
I have found the issue: The certbot documentation is outdated and needs to be updated: The new repository is buster-backports and not stretch-backports
I think the Certbot instructions are correct, but the Debian Backports instructions are somewhat confusing because they are applicable to only the current stable version of Debian (10/Buster).
If you are on Debian 9/Stretch, you would instead add:
deb http://deb.debian.org/debian stretch-backports main
in which case, the Certbot instructions work just fine.
I don’t think that using buster-backports from Debian 9 is entirely safe or desirable, but I’m no expert on Debian packaging.
