Ubuntu: Disable 'apt-get update'

Hey all,

Whenever I do a letsencrypt-auto or certbot-auto, the client does an “apt-get update”. While I understand that the client is checking for a new version of itself, it seems a bit intrusive to do this every time. I wouldn’t want the upgrade of the letsencrypt client to impact other parts of the system. Is it possible to run letsencrypt or certbot in such a way that it doesn’t do this apt-get update each time?


I think you can get that behavior if you run it with --no-self-upgrade.

Thank you schoen. I’ll give that a try.
