Getting expiration e-mails again - pls help

Hi there!

I want to receive expiration mails again. Update account command did not work, i registred my e-mailadress again (certbot register mauthner@lichtteilchen.at) but how the heck i can choose for wich domains i would have expirationmails?

My domain is: lichtteilchen.at / styrialoox.at - for both i want the expiration mails.

I ran this command: certbot update_account --email myrealname+1@mydomain.at

It produced this output: certbot: error: unrecognized arguments: update_account

My web server is (include version): ubuntu 18

The operating system my web server runs on is (include version): ubuntu 18

The version of my client is (e.g. output of certbot --version or certbot-auto --version if you're using Certbot): certbot 0.27.0

pls help, thank you very much
Bert

certbot 0.27.0 was released in september 2018 and probably does not have that command. you should upgrade to the latest certbot.

That version of Certbot is the last one available from Ubuntu's package maintainers.

Ubuntu and other Linux distros are unable to keep software up-to-date. The Certbot team got around that by supporting the Snap ecosystem instead of trying to support X versions of Y operating systems.

Below are the instructions to install snapd and certbot.
