Unable to locate package python3-certbot-dns-ovh


so i’m trying to get python3-certbot-dns-ovh installed but for some reason, the package cannot be located in the repository.
I’ve already tried to install software-properties-common and add ppa:certbot/certbot and some other ways but i can’t get it installed - simple because it cannot be found.
I’ve obviously executed this command in my bash, also without “-t stretch-backports” but it didn’t work out.

apt-get install python3-certbot-dns-ovh -t stretch-backports

E: Unable to locate package python3-certbot-dns-ovh

Operating system: Debian 9.8
Web server: nginx
Using a fully virtualized KVM server.

Please excuse myself if i missed any news about changes of the installation or whatever, i’ve really searched up the internet but i couldn’t find anything and i’m really getting frustrated. I’m not a linux expert over all so don’t blame me. :x

Ok, well than, thanks in advance and greetings.


Unfortunately python3-certbot-dns-ovh is currently only in buster and sid, not stretch-backports.


The recommended way to install it would be Docker.


You could also use one of the other DNS services available in stretch-backports, or a different ACME client.

That's for Ubuntu, not Debian.

Oh, that’s unfortunate. :frowning:

I’m not sure if i should upgrade to buster, i’m not really a linux expert so bugs could be an issue for me.
Docker looks good, however as the doc says, it can’t touch my outer nginx installation / webserver.

Nevertheless thank you, cheers.
