Error executing any certbot-auto command fails while Installing python packages

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is: (still not created) but my idea is to create it as clinicaponenet.isern.tv

I ran this command: (any certbot-auto) ./certbot-auto

It produced this output:

My web server is (include version): Apache 2.4.25

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): Debian 9

My hosting provider, if applicable, is: no idea

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):
certbot 0.28.0
bash: certbot-auto: no se encontró la orden

you can install certbot from apt, you shouldn’t need certbot-auto. apt install certbot (notice: apache and nginx plugins are packaged by themselves in python3-certbot-apache and python3-certbot-nginx, install those you need, if any)
