Following a good suggestion earlier to uninstall and reinstall homebrew, I also updated my Python version to 3.5.1. Running this:
$ ./letsencrypt-auto --debug --version
I got through Bootstrapping dependencies… Using Homebrew… (two warnings that augeas-1.4.0 and dialog-1.3* were already installed) then came the Exceptions:
pip not installed Installing pip...

Permissions on python - owner is root on this Mac mini. Newbie question: do I need to uninstall and reinstall python 2.7.11 for this to work? Apparently Python 3.x installed in somewhere other than /Library/Python so I’m unclear on best path forward.
