Sudo certbot renew Errors

Please fill out the fields below so we can help you better. Note: you must provide your domain name to get help. Domain names for issued certificates are all made public in Certificate Transparency logs (e.g. https://crt.sh/?q=example.com), so withholding your domain name here does not increase secrecy, but only makes it harder for us to provide help.

My domain is:
www.batcavelounge.eu
I ran this command:
sudo certbot renew
It produced this output:
:~/letsencrypt$ sudo certbot renew

Hi @batcave

there is something undefined.

So you should remove that module.

I think it would be better to fix the module. But Ubuntu 17.10 is like, ancient. I have no idea if it’s even easily possible.

@batcave You might want to try to update nginx to the most recent version first. If that doesn’t work, try updating libgd3. If that also didn’t work, try the work-around by removing the module.
