Ssl: certificate_verify_failed

I ran this command:
sudo /usr/local/bin/certbot-auto certonly --nginx
It produced this output:

Here’s some initial debugging to try:

curl -X GET -I https://pypi.python.org

and

python -c 'import urllib2; urllib2.urlopen("https://pypi.python.org")'

If the first one succeeds and the second one fails with CERTIFICATE_VERIFY_FAILED, try:

apt update && apt -y install ca-certificates

and then try everything again.

Thank you so much for the quick response!

The response from the first call:

The second one failed indeed.

The third gave:

ca-certificates is already the newest version (20180409).
0 upgraded, 0 newly installed, 0 to remove and 0 not upgraded.

still same result unfortunately :frowning:

Maybe

apt -y install --reinstall ca-certificates

As far as my understanding of Python goes, that package should be all that’s necessary to fix this problem.

Also, where did you install Python from? I notice that /usr/lib64/python2.7 is not exactly the standard path for Ubuntu Bionic. That could have something to do with it.

Thanks again!

I tried that before but it didn’t work unfortunately.

I guess based on your suggestion regarding Python I should try to uninstall it and install 2.7 again? Do you have a suggestion for any particular version and maybe method how to install?

Perhaps it would help to know where your current Python installation came from:

dpkg-query -S /usr/lib64/python2.7/urllib2.py

right :slight_smile:

ubuntu@ip-xxxxxx:~ dpkg-query -S /usr/lib64/python2.7/urllib2.py dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern /usr/lib64/python2.7/urllib2.py ubuntu@ip-xxxxxx:~ dpkg-query -S /usr/lib64/python2.7/urllib2
dpkg-query: no path found matching pattern /usr/lib64/python2.7/urllib2

I then ran:
dpkg-query -f ‘{Package}###{Version}\n’ -W

I think you have two Python installations.

System one in /usr/bin/python, and a foreign one in /usr/local/bin/python.

When Certbot runs, it is using the second one, which for some reason cannot find your system’s CA certificate store.

What if you try this:

export LE_PYTHON=/usr/bin/python
sudo -E /usr/local/bin/certbot-auto --version

sorry, that gave me the following :frowning:

ubuntu@ip-172-31-xxxx~ export LE_PYTHON=/usr/bin/python ubuntu@ip-172-31-xxxx:~ sudo -E /usr/local/bin/certbot-auto --version

:man_shrugging:. It’s still using the wrong Python for some reason. I don’t really understand why.

Why are you using certbot-auto anyway? The official instructions for Ubuntu Bionic are to install it from the PPA (https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/ubuntubionic-nginx) - which would also quite likely avoid this whole mess.
