Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:

Please detail the steps taken when you installed certbot-auto.


Every time we just run ./certbot-auto and it installs new certificates, but this time this command doesn’t work

In two places in your output, it suggests you upgrade to a newer version of Python because as of January 2020, Python 2 is no longer supported or receiving any updates as per
https://wiki.python.org/moin/Python2orPython3 and also what appeared in your readout:

Python 2.7 is done as of this month. Read your results above (in bold) regarding “InsecurePlatformWarning:” Fix that first by upgrading.
