Safe to force update certbot? (Ubuntu)


#1

Hi.

My system running Ubuntu 16.04.4.
Main webserver: NGINX

I have already installed a couple of SSL installed using certbot that update automatically.

So I run my scheduled apt-get update, apt-get upgrade (once per month).

I noticed the following message:

The following packages have been kept back:
certbot python-acme python-certbot-nginx python-parsedatetime

So I run:
apt-get install certbot python-acme python-certbot-nginx python-parsedatetime

and the response was:

The following additional packages will be installed:
javascript-common libjs-jquery libjs-sphinxdoc libjs-underscore python-configparser python-future python josepy python3-acme python3-asn1crypto python3-certbot python3-certbot-nginx python3-certifi python3-cffi-backend
python3-chardet python3-configargparse python3-configobj python3-cryptography python3-funcsigs python3-future python3-icu python3-idna python3-josepy python3-mock python3-ndg-httpsclient python3-openssl python3-parsedatetime
python3-pbr python3-pkg-resources python3-pyasn1 python3-pyparsing python3-requests python3-rfc3339 python3-six python3-tz python3-urllib3 python3-zope.component python3-zope.event python3-zope.hookable python3-zope.interface
Suggested packages:
python3-certbot-apache python-certbot-doc python-acme-doc python-future-doc python-certbot-nginx-doc python-configobj-doc python-cryptography-doc python3-cryptography-vectors python-funcsigs-doc python-mock-doc python-openssl-doc
python3-openssl-dbg python3-setuptools doc-base python3-socks
The following packages will be REMOVED:
python-certbot
The following NEW packages will be installed:
javascript-common libjs-jquery libjs-sphinxdoc libjs-underscore python-configparser python-future python-josepy python3-acme python3-asn1crypto python3-certbot python3-certbot-nginx python3-certifi python3-cffi-backend
python3-chardet python3-configargparse python3-configobj python3-cryptography python3-funcsigs python3-future python3-icu python3-idna python3-josepy python3-mock python3-ndg-httpsclient python3-openssl python3-parsedatetime
python3-pbr python3-pkg-resources python3-pyasn1 python3-pyparsing python3-requests python3-rfc3339 python3-six python3-tz python3-urllib3 python3-zope.component python3-zope.event python3-zope.hookable python3-zope.interface
The following packages will be upgraded:
certbot python-acme python-certbot-nginx python-parsedatetime
4 upgraded, 39 newly installed, 1 to remove and 0 not upgraded.
Need to get 3,081 kB of archives.
After this operation, 14.0 MB of additional disk space will be used.

So it says that python-certbot will be removed.

Is it safe to force the update?

Kind regards
