Installation in Ubuntu for standalone certificates

What is the difference between sudo apt-get install ca-certificates certbot and simply sudo apt-get install certbot ?

Ultimately, I want to create standalone certificates in a ubuntu virtual machine that is not yet running a webserver.

I think certbot probably depends on ca-certificates, so the two commands are practically identical.

thanks, I see ca-certificates is a package itself :slight_smile: -> Debian -- Details of package ca-certificates in sid

I am using 20.04 and never needed ca-certificates and only used snap to get my site certificates done, then the bugs with my server to get it past the http 500 nonsense
