Ubuntu 16 -- certbot not found


#1

According to the instructions for Ubuntu 16:

https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/ubuntutyakkety-nginx

I’m doing this:

    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install software-properties-common
    sudo add-apt-repository ppa:certbot/certbot
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install python-certbot-nginx

And get this:

    Reading package lists... Done
    Building dependency tree       
    Reading state information... Done
    E: Unable to locate package python-certbot-nginx


#2

try
sudo apt list python-certbot-nginx
if it is shown, try typing it in manually not cut and paste
sudo apt install python-cerbot-nginx
if it is NOT shown, then it is not in the repository


#3

Ubuntu 16.04 Xenial Xerus, or Ubuntu 16.10 Yakkety Yak?

16.10 is no longer supported by Ubuntu, and the Certbot PPA no longer contains packages for it.


#4

Ubuntu 16.10…


#5

It would be best to switch to a supported release.

#6

…other options…?


#7

The system hasn’t had security updates, or non-security updates, since July.


#8

…other options?


#9

Use a different client, or try certbot-auto instead.
