Ubuntu 16 -- certbot not found

According to the instructions for Ubuntu 16:


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

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

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.

Ubuntu 16.10…

It would be best to switch to a supported release.


…other options…?

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


.............other options?

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