Python setup.py egg_info failed with error code 1


#1

I am trying to install Let’s Encrypt with the letsencrypt-auto file:

./letsencrypt-auto

But I am getting the output:

Updating letsencrypt and virtual environment dependencies.....Command "python setup.py egg_info" failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-D2TaBP/cffi

I’m sure I’m doing something wrong, but I can’t figure it out. Do I need to install any more requirements? I have installed python-setuptools using both apt-get and pip.

I am running Debian 8.0 jessie on a Raspberry Pi v2.

Verbose output:

I get the same thing using CentOS 6.7

python 2.6 support is in the process of being readded backed into Letsencrypt client https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt/pull/1257


#4

Same here on ubuntu 14.04


#5

I have narrowed the problem down to the installation of CFFI.
pip install cffi
Returns:

I am sorry, I have wasted your time. It appears that I cannot compile any C applications at all. I can probably solve this myself, thank you.


#7

this worked, thanks.


#8

I’m running into exactly the same problem on CentOS 7 on which I run a cPanel WHM server.

I enabled compilers for the user account I’m logged in as and no longer see the InsecurePlatformWarning.

I also installed Python’s setuptools 18.7.1; I believe successfully as no errors were returned.

However I’m still getting the following error when running letsencrypt-auto with the --server and --help flags:

"python setup.py egg_info" failed with error code 1 in /tmp/pip-build-pcMK_s/cffi

@PlanetMars Did installing CFFI solve your problem?

Are there other suggestions for fixing this?

Thanks for your help.

I get the error if I run as an ordinary user, but not if I elevate to root through sudo.

I now see that the letsencrypt client requires root privileges:

Hopefully my public pondering helps someone in the future.

Cheers, Jason

Hi,dear
i think that you can “yum install gcc-c++.x86_64” to solve this question.
don’t care my english.
have a good day!
