Letsencrypt-auto Python Error Code 1

Hey everyone,
yesterday i saw that my letsencrypt-auto cron has a problem. I use debian 8.7 and letsencrypt to get my ssl certificates. Now i got an python error with the code 1. Here is the complete error message:

Command “/root/.local/share/letsencrypt/bin/python2.7 -u -c “import setuptools, tokenize;file=’/tmp/pip-build-gXnf2S/python-augeas/setup.py’;f=getattr(tokenize, ‘open’, open)(file);code=f.read().replace(’\r\n’, ‘\n’);f.close();exec(compile(code, file, ‘exec’))” install --record /tmp/pip-99Ra5K-record/install-record.txt --single-version-externally-managed --compile --install-headers /root/.local/share/letsencrypt/include/site/python2.7/python-augeas” failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-gXnf2S/python-augeas/

My python version is 2.7.9. If you need more information, please let me know.

hi @sauerkirsche

Did you try the solutions proposed?


nah. but i will try it :slight_smile:

I created a new virtual enviorment and installed certbot with the given version. After i try to get a new ssl certificate i got as result that there is a version conflict. Did i miss something?

VersionConflict: (setuptools 5.5.1 (/root/myapp/lib/python2.7/site-packages), Requirement.parse(‘setuptools>=11.3’))
Please see the logfile ‘certbot.log’ for more details.
