Python Tools problem


#1

I just finished installing letsencrypt on CENTOS 6.7, generating and installing certs after lots of troubleshooting
However somewhere in the middle of the process i had to uninstall python tools to able able to continue (it was installing python27 since the server was running python26)

Today i get a warning email from my server that it couldn’t update because of conflicts:

How do i fix this without having to remove python27 so letsencrypt continues to work?
Any help is highly appreciated

I filed https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt/issues/2921 in our issue tracker. I’m not sure whether or not we can officially support your system, but hopefully someone can clarify the situation in the issue tracker.
