Ubunutu 20.04 - Certbot package broken & out of date

I would just like to find out when the devs are going to fix the Certbot Ubuntu 20.04 package?

The current Certbot packages available in Ubuntu 20.04 is version 0.39 & 0.40 but the latest should be 1.1.0

The following packages are broken and/or out of date:
python-certbot-nginx (0.39.0-1)
python-certbot. (0.40.0-1)

Please see links for above to verify versions:

So, not only is the versions out of date, but they are mis-matching which is creating installation failures for all users.

Would be nice to have this fixed :slight_smile:

From your link, It actually seems that they are going to keep us at version 0.4 for backwards compatibility and just fix the broken tests.

I would much rather be on the latest without backwards compatibility.

Use the snap package? That’s what I’m doing on Ubuntu Focal: https://certbot.eff.org/lets-encrypt/snap-nginx

Snap has lots of issues and is not stable enough for me.
I’ll rather wait for the CertBot devs to fix their Ubuntu package.
