Issue with renew - <urlopen error timed out>


#1

Hi,
I have an issue with renew of my certificate.

I ran this command as root:

./letsencrypt-auto renew

It produced this output:

Upgrading certbot-auto 0.28.0 to 0.30.0…
Couldn’t download https://raw.githubusercontent.com/certbot/certbot/v0.30.0/letsencrypt-auto-source/letsencrypt-auto. <urlopen error timed out>

My operating system:
Debian GNU/Linux 8.11 (jessie)

The renew three months ago ran smoothly. Unfortunately not today.
Maybe someone can guide me to solve the issue.

Thank you!

Hi @Joo

are you able to connect other websites from this server?

curl www.google.com

Hi Juergen,

Yes, I am able to connect to other websites… also to google.

curl www.google.com

<!doctype html><meta content="text/html; ch

(sorry, I am not able to past the result here, too many > and < [angle brackets] )

Perhaps one of the name servers has an expired ip cached.

Check

nslookup raw.githubusercontent.com

or

dig raw.githubusercontent.com

to see the current ip address of raw.githubusercontent.com. If this doesn’t work, check your /etc/hosts file and add

151.101.112.133  raw.githubusercontent.com

as a static (temporary) ip address.
