Incorrect time in Let’s Encrypt logs on Ubuntu

I have the same issue as

Ubuntu 16.04

The /var/log/letsencrypt.log is showing the universal time and not the local time

last entry on letsencrypt.log
2018-02-17 14:07:02,862:DEBUG:certbot.renewal:no renewal failures

timestamp on file
/var/log/letsencrypt# ls -l letsencrypt.log
-rw-r--r-- 1 root root 234654 Feb 17 15:07 letsencrypt.log

/var/log/letsencrypt# date
Sat Feb 17 15:08:01 CET 2018
root@nondualvm:/var/log/letsencrypt# dpkg-reconfigure tzdata

Current default time zone: 'Europe/Amsterdam'
Local time is now: Sat Feb 17 20:24:48 CET 2018.
Universal Time is now: Sat Feb 17 19:24:48 UTC 2018.

Ive done all the reconfiguration, restart daemon etc none of this works. On this other topic there were no reactions. Do we have a bug here? can someone from letsencrypt take a look or maybe someone come with a better idea?

I can confirm the even with the latest version (cerbot 0.21.1) the logs are using UTC timestamp.
I’m not sure if this is something can be changed by the end user.

Yes im using certbot on the cron to update. This may be the problem. Let me look into it…
