Certbot snap install aa_is_enabled error

My domain is: not relevant

I ran this command: snap install --classic certbot

It produced this output:
error: cannot perform the following tasks:

  • Run configure hook of "certbot" snap if present (run hook "configure": aa_is_enabled() failed unexpectedly (No such file or directory): No such file or directory)

My web server is (include version): not relevant

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): TurnKey GNU/Linux 16.0 (Debian 10/Buster)

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: proxmox ct

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don't know): yes

I'm using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel): no

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): cannot install it

Interesting thin is that I have a aa_enabled binary on the server, but not aa_is_enabled.
Has anyone encountered error like this?
Thanks

Welcome to the community @hidraulicChicken

Other volunteers here may have better insight to this problem. But, to me it looks like a snap problem with your system. You could try posting the problem at the snapcraft snap forum while you wait for possible assistance here. This is best I can offer.

I'm not familiar with this error specifically, but Proxmox containers do have some trouble with snaps, due to the shared kernel with the host.

You could give the pip-based installation instructions a go.
