This happens sometimes but not much we can do about that.

Try the Snapcraft docs or forum

Or, try using the yum package in Centos 7 for certbot

Or, a different ACME client like that is just a shell script


The other thing you might be able to try is the pip installation method.


This is fixed, selinux was blocking it, needed to open up couple of httpd accesses for selinux:

setsebool -P httpd_ssi_exec=1

setsebool -P httpd_can_network_connect=1

You might also look at another ACME client.
