Failed to install a working "virtualenv" command, exiting
apt-get update is what i meant, not upgrade, sorry. and another error - i’d forgotten that this newer box came with 14.10 on it, not 14.04. 14.10 isn’t a long-term release, that seems to be the problem. in any case this isn’t a letsencrypt problem.
for anybody else running into this: i’m working with this solution to the 14.10 problem
I don't think those are the correct packages for Ubuntu 14.04. The OP was using 14.10 which includes different packages for virtualenv (for example, python3-virtualenv is python-virtualenv there). ./letsencrypt-auto should install the correct packages for Ubuntu 14.04 automatically If you want to do it manually, look at this file: https://github.com/letsencrypt/letsencrypt/blob/master/bootstrap/_deb_common.sh
After that I can run the .local/share/letsencrypt/bin/letsencrypt file just fine.
Running the le-auto script I always get that complaint initially.
E: No packages found
Seems things still work, even if it’s missing something.
Do note, that the install on my regular account works just fine. It’s just that I wanted to run LE in cron and then setup a specific account for it. On that account le-auto refused to work, until I stumbled on the dev instructions.
