How to completely uninstall certbot-auto and reinstall

Hello, I’m having bad headache with certbot-auto. I’ve accidentally upgraded certbot-auto. My purpose was to renew the certificate, but now any commands related to ./certbot-auto doesn’t work. So I want to completely uninstall certbot-auto, and install it from scratch. I’ve searched about it, and people said delete /opt/ and some more directories, but I’m not sure what to delete. Some posts said delete ~/.local/share/letsencrypt/, but I don’t have ~/.local. So what should I do to completely delete certbot files? And after uninstalling, do I just reinstall certbot-auto like from the scratch?
(like starting from
chmod a+x certbot-auto)

My web server is (include version):


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

Amazon Linux AMI release 2018.03

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

this command not working now, but before upgrade, it was 0.27.1. And it seems like it’s upgraded to 0.30.0(or 0.32.0, not sure…).
