Certbot new version

If this has been asked and answered, please accept my apologies. I did search and didn’t find an answer to my question.

I have root access to a server running Apache2 on Ubuntu 16.04. I am ready to install Certbot, but read this on the page describing how to install and setup Certbot:

“We are planning on releasing a new version of Certbot in the next few days that works around this but if you have to obtain a certificate and cannot wait, you have a couple of options.”

I can wait. So I do not need to use the workaround options. But I’m wondering if someone can tell me when the Certbot’s new version will be released.

The new version of Certbot has been released, but it has not yet been packaged for Ubuntu. @bmw, @hliebermancan you give an idea when that might happen? Thanks!

The latest version of Certbot was actually added to the Ubuntu PPA earlier this week. The website just hasn’t been updated yet.

You can install Certbot using the installation instructions at https://certbot.eff.org/#ubuntuxenial-apache but for the “Getting Started” section, you can simply run sudo certbot.


Thank you. This is precisely what I need to know.
