You are using pip version 8.0.3, however version 8.1.2 is available.
You should consider upgrading via the ‘pip install --upgrade pip’ command.

Would you mind providing a few more details, like the OS/distribution/version you’re using?

Are you on a low-memory system by any chance? cffi, which certbot uses internally, tends to fail to build on low-memory systems, see:


#3

I am running on Debain Jesse on 128mb vps for mosquitto mqtt. Can i generate SSL certificate from my system?


#4

You might be able to get certbot working by installing from jessie-backports, as described here. This should avoid the cffi compilation step which needs more memory.

If that doesn’t work, I’d take a look at alternative clients. There are some written in bash with almost no dependencies and very low memory requirements, so that should work in almost any environment.

Thanks pfg, i have created the certs manually using hereHere
