Fail with no log output on Debian Wheezy


#1

I have successfully used the client to install a certificate on Debian Jessie.

I am now trying to get it to work on Wheezy. It starts updaing then stops, with no error meesage and no log file in /var/log/letsencrypt .

Output:

root@server:~/letsencrypt# ./letsencrypt-auto
Updating letsencrypt and virtual environment dependencies…root@server:~/letsencrypt#


#2

And what if you try it with -v or even -vv (add more at your own discretion ;))


#3

Ah ha! It’s a firewall issue:

Updating letsencrypt and virtual environment dependencies…
Cannot fetch index base URL http://pypi.python.org/simple/
Could not find any downloads that satisfy the requirement distribute in /root/.local/share/letsencrypt/lib/python2.7/site-packages/distribute-0.6.24-py2.7.egg
No distributions at all found for distribute in /root/.local/share/letsencrypt/lib/python2.7/site-packages/distribute-0.6.24-py2.7.egg
Storing complete log in /root/.pip/pip.log

It would be nice to get a message if it failed to download a dependency without using -vv .
