Python-certbot-apache : Depends: certbot (>= 0.9.3~) but it is not installable


#1

Hi guys,

I/ve tried to install cerbot

apt-get install -t jessie-backports certbot python-certbot-apache

But it gives me following error
E: The value ‘jessie-backports’ is invalid for APT::Default-Release as such a release is not available in the sources

My Debian Apache install source list already have jessie-backports

deb http://ftp.nz.debian.org/debian/ jessie main
deb-src http://ftp.nz.debian.org/debian/ jessie main

deb http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main
deb-src http://security.debian.org/ jessie/updates main

jessie-updates, previously known as ‘volatile’

deb http://ftp.nz.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main
deb-src http://ftp.nz.debian.org/debian/ jessie-updates main

jessie-updates, from Dotdeb

deb http://packages.dotdeb.org jessie all
deb-src http://packages.dotdeb.org jessie all
deb http://ftp.debian.org/debian jessie-backports main

I’ve tried running the installation command without backports

apt-get install certbot python-certbot-apache

And then I get following
Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
Package certbot 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

Any help is appreciated.

Thanks

Did you run apt-get update before trying to install the package from backports?

Thanks for the quick responce. Yes I Did.

My original problem is I had to remove php5. So i’ve run

apt-get --purge remove libapache2-mod-php5 (this apply to any other library removal)

This gives me following

Reading package lists… Done
Building dependency tree
Reading state information… Done
You might want to run ‘apt-get -f install’ to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
python-certbot-apache : Depends: certbot (>= 0.9.3~) but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try ‘apt-get -f install’ with no packages (or specify a solution).

Then I run the apt-get -f install, command gives me following result

Ok finally solved the issue

First if you have errors like below
/usr/bin/pycompile: 26: /usr/bin/pycompile: import: not found
/usr/bin/pycompile: 27: /usr/bin/pycompile: import: not found
/usr/bin/pycompile: 28: /usr/bin/pycompile: import: not found
/usr/bin/pycompile: 29: /usr/bin/pycompile: import: not found

upgrade python or reinstall it

My original problem was corrupted sources.list file at /etc/apt. Delete the file and recreated it.

After apt-get update I’ve also got following errors
dpkg: error processing package python-certbot (–configure):
subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 2
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of certbot:
certbot depends on python-certbot (= 0.9.3-1~bpo8+1); however:
Package python-certbot is not configured yet.

dpkg: error processing package certbot (–configure):

Reinstall python
I’ve run following commands
apt-get clean
apt-get install --reinstall python2.7-minimal

This will reinstall python. Then try to reinstall certbot
apt-get install certbot python-certbot-apache

Works like charm
