I’m trying to install certbot in a Debian Jessie installation (ARMBIAN Debian GNU/Linux 8 (jessie) 3.14.79-odroidc2) but I’m unable to go ahead.
I added jessie backport to the lists (https://backports.debian.org/Instructions/) and ran apt-get update with no alerts.
When I tried to install it (sudo apt-get install python-certbot-apache -t jessie-backports) I’ve been interrupted for a series of dependencies that would not be automatically installed. I kept adding those to the “apt-get install” line and ended up with this:
apt-get install -t jessie-backports certbot python-certbot-apache python-certbot python-acme python-cryptography python-openssl python-ndg-httpsclient python-cffi python-cffi-backend
Then I was unable to go ahead. The latest error message was:
Package python-cffi-backend is not available, but is referred to by another package.
This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or
is only available from another source
E: Package ‘python-cffi-backend’ has no installation candidate
I dug the forums and wikis all over the internet, found some valuable info but wasn’t able to solve this.
Thanks a lot.
