On "new" 16.04 Kubuntu error - on old 12.04 it is working

Do I do something wrong?

on 16.04
sudo letsencrypt certonly --manual -d domain.tlp
gives an error
ReadTimeout: HTTPSConnectionPool(host=‘acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org’, port=443): Read timed out. (read timeout=45)

on 12.04
sudo /letsencrypt/letsencrypt-auto certonly --manual -d domain.tld
runs like it should

It would be nice not to have to boot in the old installation.

Kind regards,

you may have to update the certbot version or use certbot-auto

This suggests a firewall problem. Can you access https://acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org/directory with curl on that machine?

it is no firewall problem, as you can see

curl -Is https://acme-v01.api.letsencrypt.org/directory | head -n 1
HTTP/1.1 200 OK

I checked, the version of certbot is the latest.


You might also try with curl -6 if your machine thinks it has IPv6 support.

No need to try, the hoster does not offer IPv6 yet.
It will soon come but for now it is IPv4 only.


Do you have any IPv6 routes in your local routing table?

Not that I know of, I just switched to kubuntu 12.04 used certbot, and produced the key, certificate and CA-certificate, loaded them and it is working OK.

I just wonder why it will not work with 16.04 must be something trivial, but what?

Tomorow I will look into it again.
