Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better.

My domain is:
I ran this command:
./letsencrypt-auto revoke -d myfixes.ru -d www.myfixes.ru --cert-path /etc/letsencrypt.backup/live/myfixes.ru/cert.pem --key-path /home//.ssh/id_rsa
It produced this output:
An unexpected error occurred:
Please see the logfiles in /var/log/letsencrypt for more details.

My web server is (include version):
apache 2.4.18-2ubuntu3.1
The operating system my web server runs on is (include version):
Ubuntu 16.04.1 LTS
My hosting provider, if applicable, is:

I can login to a root shell on my machine (yes or no, or I don’t know):
I’m using a control panel to manage my site (no, or provide the name and version of the control panel):

For what it’s worth, i get a different error when running a similar command. (I get a reasonable error message, rather than a weird traceback.)

I don’t know what’s going on with your assertion failure, but…

When was the certificate issued? What site is it for? myfixes.ru? According to crt.sh, which may have data couple hours old, the last certificate for myfixes.ru has already expired, meaning that revoking it is unnecessary (it’s already invalid) and probably not possible. And no certificates have been issued for www.myfixes.ru.

Does that SSH private key really match the certificate? The certificate should have a unique private key, stored at /etc/letsencrypt.backup/live/myfixes.ru/privkey.pem. A different one won’t work. (Though you can revoke without the private key.)

Also, certbot revoke probably ignores -d arguments. It revokes whole certificates, not specific names, so it doesn’t need them.

Are you sure Certbot is up-to-date?

What’s in /var/log/letsencrypt/letsencrypt.log?

What are you trying to do? Why do you want to revoke that certificate?

Edit: Typo.

hi @qwerted

I would suggest review the revoke syntax: https://certbot.eff.org/docs/using.html#revoking-certificates

Specifically what parameters need to be passed.
