Certbot openssl error in centOS 7


#1

My domain is: chadura.com

I ran this command: certbot renew

certbot 0.25.1-1.el7
pyOpenSSL==18.0.0

It produced this output:

Traceback (most recent call last):
File “/bin/certbot”, line 9, in

My web server is :
nginx version: nginx/1.12.2
built by gcc 4.8.5 20150623 (Red Hat 4.8.5-16) (GCC)

The operating system my web server runs on is :
CentOS Linux release 7.5.1804 (Core)

I can login to a root shell on my machine:

I have also tried changin the pyopenssl, cryptograhy and python versions. No luck.

Have you tried updating/reinstalling urllib3?


#3
urllib3 (1.23)               - HTTP library with thread-safe connection pooling, file post, and more.
  INSTALLED: 1.22
  LATEST:    1.23

sudo pip install urllib3==1.23

certbot renew

I have even tried re-installing all the packages installed along with certbot. No luck yet! it’s my production server, kind of frustrated now.


#5

I don’t have any answers regarding your dependency problem, but if you use certbot-auto in the meantime, it should restore your ability to issue and renew your existing certificates.


#6

certbot-auto worked, thanks a lot!
